You’ve got the perfect costumes for your family, now where should you wear them? You can wait until October 31st and trick or treat in your town (see our post of official Trick or Treat Times by Town), but where’s the fun in that? There are a number of local events going on this week and next that are costume-friendly, offer a safer alternative to trick or treating after dark and may be more fun for your kids, depending on their age.
