Spook Yourself ... Or Don't: Halloween in ABQ

Via Wikipedia

It's here folks! The Halloween season has gracefully shed the skin of yesteryear and is commencing with a wide array of spooktacular festivities. And depending on your range of income, the Duke City has a multitude of events that will satisfy anyone. They all happen tomorrow, so get those itineraries ready in case Michael Myers decides to come home and you wanna show him a good time. First up, we have the 18th annual Harvest Festival at Haynes Park (2006 Grande Blvd.) from 5 to 8pm. That features trick-or-treating, carnival games, food and more. And that's a free one, people. Next, we got the Main Street Trunk or Treat at Expo New Mexico (300 San Pedro NE) from 4 to 9pm. So dress up the youngsters and head to this classic car show where people will give out candy from decked-out automobiles. There will also be a haunted house, games, face painting and lots more. That's also free. If you want to go the more “educational” route, take the young'uns over to ¡Explora! (1701 Mountain NW) from 11am to 5pm to indulge in some Halloween Fun. There will be Halloween-themed TED talk films as well as “spooky science activities.” That's included with regular admission. And while you're on that side of town, head over to the ABQ BioPark Aquarium (2601 Central NW) between 2 and 3pm to see some divers carve pumpkins underwater. Sounds easy enough, right? This, too, is also included with regular admission. Haynes Park, Rio Rancho • Fri Oct 31 • 5-8pm • FREE • View on Alibi calendar
