Over the weekend I was talking with my neighbor and they brought up the question "when are kids trick or treating this year", because their friends told them they were going to do it on Sunday.  I replied with, well, Halloween is on Monday so we're going on Monday!  In a way it's kinda of like saying Valentine's Day is on Monday, so when are you going to celebrate it!  You wouldn't do it on Sunday, you'd do it on Valentine's Day!

But I can see where the confusion can come in on when to trick or treat because of all of the fall carnivals, festivals and other activities this time of the year.  To add to the conversation, I've got a free event for ya after the jump.

The Tyler Parks & Recreation Department will be holding their 11th annual Fall Family Fun Fest at Glass Recreation Center on Thursday, October 27th from 4p - 7p.  The Glass Rec Center is at 501 W. 32nd St. in Tyler.  The Fall Family Fun Fest is free and is designated for children 2 - 12.  Among the activities included are:

  • entertainment
  • games
  • inflatable bounce house
  • door prizes
  • free refreshments
  • costume contest

For more information on the Fall Family Fun Fest at the Glass Recreation Center, call 903.595.7271.

If you know of any other fall festivals, carnivals or events feel free to post them on the Mix 93-1 Facebook page for free!  Just make sure to leave day/date, time and an address!
