FREE Kroger Kids Night Out Halloween Event 10/27 3-7pm

Kroger Kids Night Out Halloween Event
Monday, October 27, 2014

Go to your local participating Kroger on Monday, October 27, 2014 for the annual Kroger Kids Night Out Halloween Event where there is scheduled to be games, treats, and activities for the kids from 3-7pm.

My son at the Kroger Kids Night Out Halloween Event in 2007
I have taken my son to Kroger Kids Night Out Halloween events in the past and I found them to be hit or miss.

The first year that we went, my son came away with 5 lbs of candy and played tons of games, including frozen turkey bowling! All the Kroger employees dressed in costume and everyone had a wonderful time.  The next year, my son came home with exactly 10 small pieces of candy and my neighborhood Kroger had no games setup for the kids.

So everything depends on the Kroger location that you go to and how much care the store management  puts into making sure the kids (and the parents who they hope will stay and do some shopping) have a good time.

Check your Kroger weekly ad to see if your local store is participating.

Bring the whole family to one of the spookiest days of the year. The 12th annual Treats in the Streets, the FREE family Halloween celebration hosted in the Streets of Old Detroit exhibit at the Detroit Historical Museum, takes place on Sunday, October 26 from 12 to 3 p.m.

Children aged 12 and younger are encouraged to come in costume and trick or treat in the Streets of Old Detroit, enjoy free refreshments and make a Halloween craft to take home. Throughout the afternoon, you’ll be astounded by the magic of The Amazing Clark and enjoy the scarily funny “Ha Ha Halloween Show” with ventriloquist/puppeteer Richard Paul (check out the show by viewing the video below).

As a special addition to this year’s event, the St. Vincent and Sarah Fisher Center will be handing out unique goodies in the Community Gallery on the second floor of the museum. Please plan to arrive early, as refreshments are only available while supplies last!

Treats in the Streets is sponsored by HAP.

Admission to the Detroit Historical Museum is always FREE.
