Halloween Night Events in Las Vegas

Published On October 29, 2013 | By Christa Schueler | Cafe Mom, Community, Family, Fun, Holiday, Just For Dads

Remember Halloween nights when you were a kid? Mine were filled with the doorbell ringing, neighborhood kids in their costumes and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown playing on the TV.  Of course I did my fair share of trick-or-treating because going door to door for candy is the tradition. However, not all children (and grown-ups) are fans of trick-or-treating in the dark or perhaps you want to break with tradition and do something different this year. The Las Vegas area has several Halloween night events that you and your family can enjoy if you want a spooky good time outside the neighborhood.

Here’s a list of family-friendly venues that are offering a “spooky” good time on Halloween:

Town Scary at Town Square – 4:00 to 7:00 pm

Your little trick-or-treaters can walk around Town Square and receive candy from participating stores and restaurants. Games and activities will also be available to children at this event.
