If you’re looking to maximize use of those Halloween costumes, rest assured there are plenty of opportunities for Westchester families. Though costumes are optional, plenty of Halloween fun lies ahead.
For starters, there’s the Bronxville Children's Halloween Festival, an annual community event featuring pony rides, carnival rides, live music and more. In a similar vein is the annual Ragamuffin Parade and Carnival, which combines a parade with carnival rides and more. If you’re more into the creepy side of the holiday, pile on the fear factor at Spooky Stories from Six Feet Under, with live storytelling set among the dead.
For a departure from Halloween, enjoy FREE fun for all ages (including both workshops and screenings) at YoFi Fest - The Yonkers Film Festival or the return of Family Fun Day, where circus workshops, crafting and more await the younger set.
But that’s not all! There are even more ragamuffin parades, FREE Halloween programs and other seasonal fun that’s not to be missed. Be sure to consult our Halloween guide for Westchester and the Hudson Valley, and to turn the creepiness up a notch, check out our guide to Cemetery Tours. There are still many more options to choose from on our Event Calendar, so head there after you read on for more!
