Gather 'round, young ghouls. Fall is descending upon NYC, and the only way to ring in the season properly is by channeling our spooky side. Fortunately, the many Halloween festivals for kids throughout each borough are a great way to give autumn and All Hallows Eve a warm reception. 

From costume contests (for humans and even pups), trick-or-treating, pumpkin picking and scary movie screenings, Halloween 2018 is bound to be better and scarier than ever (well, not too scary, so don't fret Mom and Dad).
