7 Spooktacular Halloween Events
Grownup-focused or kid-friendly, there's something for everyone this season. Even if you don't have a costume.
Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year, and that’s not a bad thing. It means there are lots celebrations the weekend before – and some the weekend after – you go trick-or-treating with the kiddos. Here are a few events worth checking out. There’s fun to be had for little ones, as well as for big kids over 21.
A friend had this to say about scarfing down her kids’ stash of Halloween candy: “Must stop eating the fun-size candy if I want to keep the fun-size body.” Get yourself centered and reallocate those calories with New District Brewing’s “Spookasana” vinyasa yoga class on Oct. 28 at 10:30 a.m. Set to spooky music, the class will continue the relaxation after shavasana with beer. A $15 advance ticket ($20 at the door) pays for the class and one pint of craft brew. Bring your own mat.
Think kids look cute in costumes? Try pugs, poodles and other dog breeds roaming Merrifield Garden Center, dressed in whatever fanciful creations their owners dream up. The 11th annual dog costume contest is free and will take place Oct. 28 at 12 noon, rain or shine. Grand prize is a $100 gift card.
