Man, this little island has some pretty great stuff going on. I love how the community really comes together. There were so many Halloween events and we took advantage of as many as we could!
On Friday, we attended this adorable Spooktacular at the Park event hosted by Hike-It-Baby Galveston. Have you heard of Hike-It-Baby? If not and you’ve got little ones, I definitely recommend seeing if they have a chapter in your area. It’s a great way to get outdoors and meet some new people!
We read Halloween-themed books and did a candy hunt while we walked around the park. The kids had a blast and the parents were happy to have a bit of time outside of our houses!
On Saturday, we stopped by Target to get some free Halloween goodies. I had no idea that Target did this – and I’m not sure if it’s every Target – but we got a cute candy bag and we walked around the store stopping at the tables they had setup. Most of it was to advertise upcoming holiday sales and various brands, but I’m not complaining about getting free goodies! We also did some Target shopping while we were there. Kudos to Target because their little Halloween event totally worked on me. I was lured in and spent a good amount of money! Ha!
On Sunday we went to the “Great Pumpkin Festival” at a local church called Moody Methodist. I had no idea what to expect and it was really well done. It was pretty packed!! We enjoyed the trick-or-treating candy walk inside the building as well as some outside activities like face painting, story time, and a maze.
On Halloween, Pookie had a party and costume parade at her school (so adorable!!) and that evening we were able to trick-or-treat with some of our new Galveston friends. Pookie was so happy in her black and purple kitty outfit! She really enjoyed the festivities this year and I loved watching her run from house to house with her new friends!
With the exception of Rob having to work, it was a perfect day! Hopefully he can join us next year. We <3 Halloween!
