The countdown to Halloween is on and this weekend’s roundup includes lots of non-scary family fun. For starters, we have a magical Halloween activity, a pumpkin party with zoo animals, and a high-flyin’ Halloween bash. We also have an awesome carnival for wee ones, a hilarious production about a chicken, and a spooktacular festival that will leave you seeing green. Looking for even more non-scary fun?
