One of our local hotels (the one with the awesome water park) did a Halloween event on Monday. Every child in a costume got a coupon for free admission to the water park so that was motivation enough to go. :)
It was very busy but well worth it because several other business's got involved so we got candy and many coupons for services or stores. :)
Tonight for Halloween my daughter is joining a friend and my son gets to stay with me while we go collecting can goods for the community with our youth event, Faceless Hope.
Next year I am hoping to make our costumes.
