If you want to try something a little different for Halloween, consider participating in a Halloween 5K race. This one is taking place in Rutherford for the 5th year on Oct. 23, and you’re invited to wear your Halloween costume. Money raised from the event benefits the Rutherford PBA Local #300. There will be a DJ, BBQ and more fun after the race concludes.
This is a great event for younger kids, as it is suitable for children in grades kindergarten through 5th grade. There will be a family-friendly Halloween movie to watch, as well as “dirt” pudding cups that kids can make. It takes place on Oct. 26 at 3:30 p.m. and is open to River Vale residents only. Registration is required.
Take a theatrical tour of the Fell Asylum for the Criminally Insane at The Historic John Fell House Property. This takes place from Oct. 18 – Oct. 25 with tour times between 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. You’ll want to be sure to reserve your spot ahead of time. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for those aged 11 – 17 (event recommended for ages 11 and up), seniors and students.
Kids ages 3 and up can visit the Disney Store at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus dressed up as their favorite Disney character. The event will include games and crafts, as well as a costume parade and free giveaways. It’s a must-attend event for kids who love Disney.
