With decor, costumes, and candy on this month's shopping list, we're all in the market for some free (or low-cost) crafty, spooky, and fun Halloween events kids will love. From Halloween parades to costume parties and pumpkin festivals, the Boston area hosts plenty of free Halloween activities through October 31 that won't break the bank! 

Our Halloween Fun Guide has more ideas for things to do, while families who are a wee bit Halloween'd out can find plenty more seasonal activities in our list of free October activities. Or, curl up on the couch with the kids with some caramel popcorn, or a mug cake, and watch one of our picks for best Halloween movies for kids
