Halloween, Place to Go Where Are No Ghosts?

Hi Lady's,
My eldest son is very easily scared. That's why I don't think it is a good idea for him to go trick and treat on the street with all the scarry costumes. Does anybody know a place where they just do games with the kids, eat lots of candy etc. and where are no scarry costumes? Just to have a fun night on halloween? I know last year our church organised a party, but we moved to here and I don't know where to go.

Thank you. We live in Las colinas, irving.

So What Happened?

thanks for the input. Boo at the zoo is not at halloween night itself, so that's not what we were looking for. But it sounds fun, so maybe we go someday before halloween! The A. Brown park in Coppell is exactly what we were hoping to find, so we're planning to go there. Thank you so much.
The eldery home sounds also as a good idea, but I don't know one.
Thanks again, I.

Hi I.,

Here in Coppell close to you, there will be a Fall Festival at the Andrew Brown Park East (260 East Parkway Blvd.)

Tuesday, October 31, 2006
5:30-8:30 p.m.
Fee: $3 per child in advance
$4 per child at event
Ages Birth to 10 years

The City offers this event as a safe alternative or addition to the traditional trick-or-treat activities. The fun will include a DJ, games, activities, a hayride, pumpkin decorating, and plenty of snacks and treats for all.
COSTUME PARADE - begins at 8:15 p.m. to end our wonderful evening. Come dressed in your best costume to participate in the Halloween Parade.

My husband is also for the Netherlands - we've been here about a year, also enjoying it v. much! SAHM to 18 mos old, #2 on the way.

I just heard a great idea. Some nursing homes/elderly living centers have a trick-or-treat night where they invite kids in and hand out candy. It's great for the residents, for obvious reasons, and I suspect scare-friendly for the kids. Sorry, I don't live in your area to where I can share a list of groups putting this on, but maybe you can call around.

You could always take them to the Boo at the Zoo. We went one year and the kids had a blast.

Some of the city's have their own halloween events as well as malls; and they request non scary costumes because it's mainly for the kids.
