Trick or Treating and other Fun for Halloween in Flagstaff!

4

Halloween is coming up quickly and there are so many fun things to do in Flagstaff for all ages!

Here is a list of several events going on, as well as a few neighborhoods that are always passing out lots of candy!  

Warner’s Nursery will have Trick-Or-Treating twice! Once on Oct. 27th starting at 1pm and again on Halloween starting at 4pm. 

The Flagstaff Mall has Trick-or-Treating on Wednesday, October 31st from 4-6pm while candy supplies last.  

The Children’s Health Center at Flagstaff Medical Center is hosting it’s 1st annual Boo Bash, from 4-6pm on Halloween!

It is always fun on Halloween at Heritage Square’s Halloween Harvest & Trick-Or-Treat Trail from 4-7pm! There will be a Thriller dance, a Freaky Fashion show, the Chilling Arts & Crafts and Creepy Carnival Games, a Trick-Or-Treat Trail with over 20 stops and discounts offered at some downtown businesses.

The following neighborhoods have lots of families and therefore are great for trick or treating. 

My kids now even know which houses give out the full-size candy bars and this mom is grateful for the houses that give out toothbrushes! Ponderosa Trails, University Heights, Boulder Point, Coconino Estates and Country Club are great neighborhoods for trick or treating.

Several of our amazing local businesses offer fun October festivals too! Viola’s has a Pumpkin Patch and many other activities throughout the month of October. Weekends at Bearizona are reserved for the Howly Growly Owly Festival! The Train in Williams, AZ is going to the Pumpkin Patch through the month of October. Check out this list of pumpkin patches in Northern Arizona too! Finally, the Flagstaff General Store is hosting its 1st Haunted House in their basement on Oct. 19-20, Oct. 26-27 and of course Oct. 31st! That one sounds like scary stuff!

I will make a plug for those kids with food allergies this Halloween too. It can be an actual scary time for kids with food allergies during Halloween. Here is some information about the Teal Pumpkin Project and you can always pass out the ever-popular glow bracelets or glow sticks and other non-food options for kids that need or prefer those!

If you are the environmental type please take into consideration the packaging that comes with some Halloween Candy and know that you can buy sustainably made candy too.  

And don’t forget the Candy Buy Back Program at Around the Mountain Dentistry, the day after Halloween!

I know there are lots of other activities going on this October so please share anything we may have missed! Where do you love to Trick or Treat?
