It's that time of year. Leaves are changing colors. It's getting cooler. You've been seeing Halloween costumes in stores for at least the last month and a half. Yup. It's the start of October and the beginning of Halloween season.

We've got a couple of early dates and locations for safe trick or treating (AND trunk or treating) for the kiddos. We'll be updating them all season right up until All Hallows Eve bwahahahaha...that was evil laughter in case you missed it. Thanks to Lansing Family Fun for sharing their list. Please stop by and check them out online. A lot of these events are free, but please follow the links and read the descriptions to be sure before you head out.
