Here’s our Wichita Halloween events list for 2019! This is where to find safe and not-so-scary trick-or-treating opportunities and other fun Halloween/fall events this year in Wichita.
Don’t be sad that Halloween falls on a Thursday in 2019! 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’ll even find trunk-or-treats throughout Halloween week and on the weekend too.
You’re going to be so busy filling up your bag with treats you’ll need an assistant to help you carry it all.
