While the festivities may have limitations this year, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the most anticipated day of the season, which falls on a Saturday. So, start planning your costumes, and find an on-theme mask (of course!), heed these safety guidelines from the CDC, and then grab your calendars and start plotting your seasonal frights. From over-the-top theme park celebrations to trunk-or-treats, haunted houses, and farm festivities here are the best ways to celebrate Halloween with New Jersey kids.
