Last week's W.G.W. was all about adult fun. Today's post is all about ghoulishly good times for the entire family!
La Jolla, CA
Enjoy an evening of oceanographic oddities at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps; enjoy two nights of science gone awry as you encounter creeps from the deep and experiments with wacky, mad scientists.
During the city's 10thannual Boo on Bell Street, organized by the nonprofit group Safe Events For Families, families can participate in a plethora of activities like A Bark In The Park and Frankenmutt Howl-o-ween Pet Costume Contest, pumpkin-pie and hot-dog eating contests, and trick-or-treating at participating downtown merchants.
Oregon City, OR
Take a spooky stroll through the Wenzel Family Farm's 1,000-foot wooded fantasy trail for a perfect family outing through a tunnel, maze and crooked house and suspension bridge.
At Grant's Farm, the 281-acre ancestral home of the Busch family (as in Anheuser-Busch, Inc.), families can truly celebrate Halloween among the creatures--about a thousand of them--representing more than a hundred different species from six continents.
Pumpkinfest 2009 kicks off this weekend with a weigh-in for giant veggies. Other events include the Pumpkin Regatta, where sponsors and growers gut the oversize pumpkins and float them in a race on Otsego Lake.
Up for a Halloween challenge? Try finding your way out of the 10-acre cornfield Enchanted Maize by Rock City near Chattanooga. Kids can also enjoy all the usuals like hayrides and a kiddie maze, while later in the evening, the grown-ups can check out The Voodoo Bayou & Forest of Fear.
