"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
October 25th, 2011
Why do we love Halloween so much? Is it the free candy? Perhaps it’s the fact that it’s the only day when it’s socially acceptable to walk around in a disguise and ask for free candy? Yes, that’s one of the reasons. But Halloween is also a chance to get outside and celebrate the season. Jack-o-lanterns, witch hats, candy apples, and haunted houses are all unique to this time of year. Two years ago, Teen Travel Talk went to Blaze and had a blast. So even if these particular Halloween events aren’t nearby for you, there are bound to be a few in your area. Check them out–you won’t regret it!
On that note, our final recommendation for this Halloween is that you save the date for the town of Bristol’s Halloween Carnival that takes place October 30th in Rockwell Park. Though this celebration is more for younger kids, who doesn’t like to watch a costume parade amidst gorgeous fall colors on a lovely autumn day? Other highlights include a magic trick performance, carnival activities, arts and crafts, rides, and yes, plenty of clowns. Bring younger siblings to win prizes and show off their costumes. Bristol Parks and Recreation is hosting the carnival for the seventeenth year in a row, which is a testament to its local popularity, and attendance is free! Halloween isn’t just for trick-or-treating, so head over to Rockwell Park for extra spooky fun.
