6 Halloween Activities For Kids in Kansas City To Celebrate This Beautiful Season

Pumpkin Hollow

All month long in October, the Arts & Recreation Foundation of Overland Park happily hosts their Halloween celebration with Pumpkin Hollow Kansas City kids. Take a horse-drawn hayride down to the event, where you can climb through the spider web maze, explore the Kidz Corral, and drive a pedal car (among many other activities.) When you’re done for the day, you can pick out a pumpkin to take home – all included in the cost of your ticket! 


Boo & Brew is a family-friendly fall Halloween festival that has something for every Kansas City family! Enjoy live music, delicious food trucks (with beers on tap), aerial performances, and so much more. Kids can explore police and fire trucks hands-on while meeting local first responders. Plus, you can enjoy trick or treating at a bunch of the local retailers nearby. Try out your Halloween costume a little early and get your candy stash started ahead of time!

Night of the Living Farm

Night of the Living Farm is perfect for Halloween lovers who may enjoy a slightly scarier experience, though they have plenty of non-scary activities, too! Kids can enjoy pirate ship racing, a delicious marshmallow roast, dancing with princesses, and fortune telling. Those looking for more spooks and scares will love a haunted hayride and a flashlight scavenger hunt in the dark. This limited event is definitely one to catch!
