South Florida Halloween Fun
Halloween is just around the corner. Here are some South Florida events where you can celebrate.
Halloween at home. Miami shoppers to celebrate Halloween at home and the Dolphin Mall throughout the month. Throughout October, customers can stop at the mall’s information booth to pick up a goodie bag with candy, chocolate, Bath & Body Works Pocketbac Hand Sanitizer, Kids Club Gift, bakery treat and a Passport to Shopping.
As part of the festivities, the mall hosts a Halloween House Decorating Contest. Customers can pick up a yard sign indicating their participation at the information booth. After decorating their home, participants send a photo to [email protected] for a chance to win first, second and third prize winners, who receive Visa gift cards for $1,500, $1,000 and $750, respectively. The winners will be announced Oct. 30.
Garden Nights. Fairchild Garden hosts a Halloween Dream, a family movie night where families can trick or treat in the rainforest and then enjoy a movie night on the lawn with beverages and food from the Glasshouse Cafe. Oct. 31, 6 p.m.; tickets are $25 per person and $10 for children 6-17.
That same day, foodies can get their fill of Miami’s best cuisine at Eat. Drink. Garden.
