Some of us have kids that are hard core Halloween fans. They want a haunted house to bring it's most terrifying A-game....there are plenty of places for that BUT I wanted to share some celebrations with you that are not super-scary for  the little kiddos. There are super-fun events happing in New Jersey and PA too!

This is my favorite one!  I'm a Sesame Street super fan...always have been. In fact when I was a kid, I used to try to sound cool so I would just call it "Street".  It's all about the rep ya know? The Count’s Halloween Spooktacular is taking place at Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA!  Kids can come in costume from September 18 to November 7th, and see their favorite Sesame Street characters dressed up for Halloween. There is also a Not-Too-Spooky Halloween Drive-Thru running September 28-October 28th with millions of lights. Guests stay in their cars and drive through the fun with all of our favorite characters.
