It’s Halloween! The most fun night of the year. Yes THE most fun night of the year. New Years Eve may get all the press but really watching a ball drop in Times Square on TV or counting down the new year is not as much fun as the spookiest night of the year. Remember dressing up in scary, fun, and cute costumes, begging for candy and having a frightfully fun time?! This year there is plenty of family fun and adult spooks to be had.

A fortune teller and other spooky surprises will also be offered.
