Halloween Day (and Night) Events in Kalamazoo

Pumpkins are carved, costumes have been tried on and are ready to wear – Halloween has arrived!

Given the weather the last few years in Southwest Michigan, we figure the odds of decent weather on Halloween are about the same as winning the recent Mega Millions lottery – but we’re optimistic.

Either way, we’ve included alternatives to traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating around the neighborhood that you may want to consider. There are a variety of spooktacular events and activities happening on Halloween – with a number of indoor options to stay warm and dry, just in case.

Have a safe and fun Halloween from the entire KZOOKids.com crew!
