Non-Scary Event Disclaimer: The Halloween events we post as “Non-Scary Halloween Events” are not INTENDED to be scary so that small children can enjoy them, too. However, there are many aspects of the Halloween celebration — costumes, masks, carved pumpkins, scarecrows, witches, etc. — that a child may personally find to be frightening.
