Halloween Family Fun

What???? It is almost Halloween!?!?!?

Yup, that is right! October is almost over and it is time to get yourself prepared for one of the spookiest nights of the year.  Here, at The Kenmore, we want to help you and your family make the most of the Halloween season!  We are so excited for our Hollow Eve Party for our residents.  Please join us in the lobby to celebrate Halloween on Friday, October 30th, from 5:30-6:45 p.m.  Our community free event is for families with children 12 years or younger.   A costume contest will be held, as well as, tricks and treats for the kiddies.

Also, we know many of you, like us, don’t want to celebrate Halloween on just one day and night.  Luckily, there are many family friendly Halloween events happening around our neighborhood and in other parts of D.C. that are only a quick drive or metro trip away.

Take advantage of two of the Smithsonian centers, the National Zoo and the Air and Space Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.  Head on down Connecticut Avenue to the National Zoo to participate in their annual Halloween event, Boo at the Zoo, on October 23-25 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Your family can trick-or-treat their way through the zoo while enjoying animal demonstrations, entertainment, a maze and scarecrow field.  On October 24th from 2-7p.m., the Udvar-Hazy Center is hosting their Air and Scare event which includes spooky science experiments, creepy crafts, Halloween-themed activities and of course trick-or-treating!  If your kiddies are into trains, head north to Cabin John or Wheaton regional parks for an “eye spy” Halloween train (kids under 8) or a haunted train (kids over 8).

In addition to some of the above events, the Tudor Place and Glen Echo Park are making it easier for parents to entertain their kiddies throughout the day of Halloween.  Trick-or-treat through the gardens, paint pumpkins, enjoy other crafts, face painting and active period games at the Tudor Place.  At Glen Echo Park, enjoy many free activities at their Fall Frolic.  Families will be able to participate in many different Halloween activities and crafts before participating in the free costume parade through the park!

Now that you and your family know about many of the family fun Halloween happenings around the area, we hope that you all have a safe and candy filled Halloween.  We also hope to see all of you and your children at our event! Happy Halloween!
