It is that time of year where spooky is in. Your kids want to dress up (maybe even you) and go trick or treating. But where is safe and fun? It is not always easy knowing where to go. We have a few ideas where there will be loads of fun.
If you're in the Montecito area, your kids will love Ghost Village Road !! Located at Coast Village Road on October 31st, Montecito transforms into a creepy, haunted village. There will be trick or treating from 3- 5:30PM. Dress your best for the costume contest. There will be fun houses to go through and many sweets from the cupcake store, even gelato.
If you are in the Goleta area on Friday stop by the Halloween Extravaganza Calle Real Center, October 31, from 3-6 pm there will be trick or treating with a Tunnel of Terror (Courtesy of the Pet House) a Train Ride. There will also be face painters, a creative balloon master, and three spooky bounce houses! To make it more exciting they will have the AMR ambulance, Sheriffs cruiser and Santa Barbara County fire truck.
If you cant make those there is also Trick or Treat on The Plaza October 31 from 4-PM. This is located at the 5 Points La Cumbre Plaza. Selected stores have fun filled trick or treating for the kids.
If you feel like extending the fun here are some freakishly fun treat ideas that you, your family and friends will love.
The Frankenstein Rice Krispies are easy and a crowd pleaser. You need: 1 box of rice krispies, 1 bag of large marshmallows, 1 bag of small marshmallows, green food coloring, 2 bags of chocolate chips, one bag of pretzel thins and a jar of peanut butter. It is easy, fun and tasty all at the same time.
At the store you can find edible marker. This is very helpful when creating a scary healthy snack. You can use it to draw your own ghosts face on your banana and anything else you want to make spooky. (Cookies, marshmallows, fruit, etc).
Have a crazy safe time!!
