Halloween Family Things To Do: Central NJ

Halloween Family Things To Do: Central NJ

Halloween Family Things To Do: Central NJ

Happy October, New Jersey! I don’t know about you but I think Halloween with kids is just the cutest. So I like to try and make the fun last for more than just one night (even though the candy should last them longer than one night!) As always, I try to share my NJ knowledge with you all. So I rounded up some information about local fun that is Halloween themed and family-friendly. Please let me know what you think and if you are ever interested in getting local event ideas for other NJ towns. 

Spooky Puppy Party

Oct. 19 at 12:00 PM
118 County Road 526, Allentown, NJ, 08501

I don’t know about you, but when I talk about my family, the dog is included! So this is a great event for anyone who also believes dogs are family members (because they are.)  Marty’s Place Howl-O-Ween Family Fest is a day of family fun with activities such as Canine Obstacle Challenge, Hay Rides, Pumpkin Bowling, a Canine Costume Contest (with prizes), Dog Photo Sessions, K-9 police dog demonstrations, a Caricaturist, face painting, Live Music by vendors, and more. Admission is $5 for anyone over the age of Six.

Boo at the Boardwalk

Oct 19 – Oct 27 12:00 – 4:00 PM
300 Ocean Ave, Point Pleasant Beach

As if Jenkinson’s Boardwalk isn’t good enough during the summer, they decided to have a Halloween party! There will be trick-or-Treating, Crafts, Games, Pumpkin Patch, Beach Maze, Underwater Pumpkin Carving (yeah, you read that right), Kiddie Rides, Perky’s Pumpkin Derby and more! If that doesn’t sound absolutely adorable to you, I don’t know what will to be honest!

Spooky Science

October 25 at 6:00 – 7:00 PM
765 Newman Springs Rd, Lincroft

Whether your kid is interested in science or this is your way of tricking them into doing something educational, the Monmouth Museum is doing a great show combining the fun of science and Halloween. It’s one part magic, one part science, and one part spooky fun. What more could you ask for? Tickets are $18 before 10/18 and $20 after.

Farm FunFest

October 26 at 11:00 AM – 2:30 PM
525 US Highway 9, Manalapan

Maple Leaf Farms is having the best of both worlds. The classics of  Halloween fun meet a new school twist. There are tons of typical activities like pumpkin picking, hayrides, and corn mazes. But there are also some crazy interesting fun things like duck races, corn cannons, and something called tire mountain! Seems like there really is something for everybody here.
