Halloween, Trick or Treat, and Fall Events on the Cheap Near Wichita

Don’t be sad that Halloween falls on a Monday in 2011! That’s great news, not bad, because that means not all the fall, trick-or-treat, trunk-or-treat, or other Halloween events in Wichita happen on the same day! You’re going to be so busy filling up your bag with treats you’ll need an assistant to help you carry it all.

Below you’ll see a list of Halloween events – most are free, but not all. Many are for kids, but not all. Adults and teens will find some Halloween activities in this list too. I’ve done my best to provide accurate information, but *do* click on the blue links to go directly to the source in case anything changes.

Please check back, because I’ll add new events as I find them. Enjoy!
