Friday 10/31 (Happy Halloween!)
Things get kid friendly with Trick or Treat in Fremont! A ton of local businesses will be participating and ready to handout candy to Trick-or-Treaters from 3-6pm. Organizers ask that Trick-or-Treaters be:
  • A child
  • Dressed in a costume
  • And accompanied by an adult (please no adults in masks)

You can also Trick-or-Treat at the zoo! The animals get pumpkins too!

From 9:30am-3:00pm Woodland Park Zoo hosts a family-friendly Pumpkin Bash where you can “discover a repertoire of animal behavior as hippos, bears, elephants, monkeys, and other animals crunch, smash or stomp on pumpkins!”

Have fun kiddos!
