All Treats, No Tricks!
Trick or Treating in Maryland!
It’s the time kids of all ages look forward to each year. When parents rush to the store and buy the “perfect costume” and the overachieving parents get to reveal their homemade masterpiece! Now that the costumes are checked off the list, the next question is “What places will we hit up for the goods?” I’ve gathered a list of spots for trick or treating in Maryland to get you started. Trick or treating and the Halloween festivities starts this weekend so take it all in.
Don’t forget that the Pumpkin Patch Farms are in full swing and the Fall Festivals are bringing in kids by the truck load. Always come back here and check for updates or see the calendar as both will be updated daily!! Happy Halloween and Be Safe!!
