Remember trick or treating as a youngster? The thrill of choosing just the right costume or character? The fun of sharing laughs with your friends? The excitment of finding a full size Hershey Bar or Resse’s Peanut Butter Cup in your trick or treat bag or plastic pumpkin?
Those same thrills exist today for you and your family with a variety of Fall Festival events and Halloween related activities in Wisconsin Dells. Certainly, Halloween has changed through the years. What hasn’t changed is the fun, laughs and the big and small scares that Halloween brings to the kid in all of us. Some off season bargains can be a plus as well!
