Falling temperatures might send you indoors, but there are a number of fun events just for young children that will temp you to head out and about the Capital Region.

The Children’s Guide 3rd Annual Halloween Bash!

Stacy Jubert, of The Children’s Guide, shared this Halloween event:

This is one of my favorite events to host! It’s so much fun to see all the kids dressed in costume having a blast!

This event is perfectly safe Halloween Fun! October 29th at Afrim’s Sports in Colonie on Albany Shaker Rd from 11-2. Trick or Treating with over 20 vendors, bounce zone, games, soccer and more!

I make the trick or treating into a scavenger hunt, it’s just a little more fun that way! Plus some great Halloween games like Guess What’s Inside, a Halloween tattoo Station and more!

Siena Basketball will be there with their new hoop game where kids can play for a chance to win tickets to games, t-shirts and more!

And your kids won’t get only candy! At the prize station they can choose 3 items and there are all sorts of prizes for them!

$4 per child, please visit www.thechildrensguide.com for details.
