Looking for somewhere great to take the kids trick-or-treating this year? We still have a few more years left to fill up the candy bag, so this family is always on the look out for a great place to go. We already love Lincoln Center and Lincoln Center Kids so this year we are gong to check out their annual trick-or-treat event featuring a costume parade, activities, Scavenger “Haunt,” Performances, Storytime, and more.
This free event takes place on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at 11:00 am
