Thought I would share this press release with you since many moms look for alternatives to traditional trick or treating. We did this with James when he was really little.
October is Trick-or-Treat time at Atlanta-area Simon malls, and there will be plenty in store for young ghouls and goblins. From festivals and costume contests to games and sweet treats, there’s something for everyone! Halloween events include the following:
- Northlake Mall opens its doors for trick-or-treaters from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., and kids can stock up on goodies from participating mall retailers. Stop by Guest Services for a treat and list of participating stores. (4800 Briarcliff Rd., Atlanta; 770-938-3564)
