There are quite a few alternatives to letting the kids run the streets on Halloween. Lots of safe and (mostly) free trick-or-treating is available for the little goblins, witches, and super heroes around the Truckee Meadows.
Boo! It's Halloween in Reno, Nevada.

Some safe trick-or-treating events take place on the weekend before Halloween, which falls on a Thursday. Some of early Halloween happenings include Trick-or-Treat at the Discovery Museum, a Harvest Festival at Idlewild Park, and Trick or Treat Street at Circus Circus Hotel Casino (yes, this is for kids and families).
On Halloween, take the kids to Trick-or-Treat in the Streets at the National Automobile Museum, a Halloween Egg Hunt at Legends in Sparks, or perhaps Safe Trick-or-Treating at the Nevada Humane Society.
To see more of your choices, refer to "Safe and Free Trick-or-Treating in Reno."
For Halloween fun with more of an edge, perhaps ghost hunting would be of interest. We have plenty of haunted places around Reno and northern Nevada where the spirits are said to dwell. Learn more about these haunting locations in by "Haunted Buildings and Places Around Reno" article.
