Halloween is right around the corner, and that means a fall bounty of festivities. Chester County families may be looking for All Hallow’s fun, but don’t want their little ones to get too spooked. Here’s a few way families can ring in the season, writes Gina Lizzo for Main Line Today.
Halloween Special at West Chester Railroad
For two weekends in October, kids are encouraged to rock out their favorite costumes on this 90-minute fall foliage train ride. Passengers have scenic views of Chester Creek Valley to and from Glen Mills. To avoid hangriness, kids get free treats on the layover!
Kennett Trunk or Treat
On Oct. 29 between 6-8 PM kids can go trick-or-treating in Kennett Square. Kids under seven can come get their treats between 6-7 PM, and kids over eight can catch some candy between 7-8 PM. Parents must be in attendance.
West Chester Halloween Parade
On Oct. 26 from 7-9 PM this free parade starts at Church & Market Street. Kids can grab a goodie bag of candy before the parade. Stick around after to catch local marching bands from West Chester University, East, Henderson, and Rustin high schools play. There will also be performances from the high school cheer and dance teams.
