Not-So-Scary Halloween Events for NYC Preschoolers
Halloween can be magical in NYC with over-the-top decorations and plenty of family-friendly events, but little revelers are often overwhelmed by its trappings. Halloween 2020 is going to be particularly tricky for families: Crowds are out and trick-or-treat alternatives are in. Still, we've managed to find 19 Halloween events perfect for preschoolers, which deliver just the right amount of "treats" for the pint-sized crowd.
Enjoy these gentle Halloween events while you can—your kids will be celebrating at the Village Halloween Parade before you know it. You can find more festive happenings for all age groups in our Halloween Guide, and our Event Calendar, which is continually updated with new, fun events as we find out about them.
