Local Mom Scoop is sharing the South Florida Events Halloween & Fall 2019 Guide.
Seriously, I can’t say it enough, but celebrating Halloween is my favorite time of year. My family loves going to the pumpkin patches and picking out that perfect pumpkin. Dressing up in their costumes and creating those memorable pics as they get older each year.
But it’s the events that really get us in the spooky spirit. We just attended the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in Orlando which was a real treat. (no pun intended!)
Now it’s time to check out all the South Florida events for Halloween and fall. It’s the only way to get festive when it’s 85 degrees out.
Get the scoop on South Florida Events Halloween & Fall 2019 Guide.
Some are for the entire family and a few are for the adults!

Now it’s Mavis’ turn to play the overprotective parent, keeping her dad and Ericka apart. Little do they know that his “too good to be true” love interest is actually a descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, ancient nemesis to Dracula and all other monsters.
