8 Events Taking Place this Halloween Weekend in Twin Falls and Boise
For many of us it has snuck up, and for some, it has been a long wait, but Halloween weekend is finally here. With the holiday falling on a Monday, it makes it more of a three-day event this year than a one-day holiday. Many are taking advantage of the calendar this year and holding many Halloween events before the day itself, and that benefits the residents of Twin Falls, as there is much to do this weekend and much candy to be had.
Thursday, October 27 Through Monday, October 31 - Trunk or Treats
With Halloween falling on a Monday, the weekend is a prime time to have a trunk or treat event, both for the places putting them on and for all the trick-or-treaters in the area. There have already been some this past week, but going into the weekend there are so many, that there is no reason to not have a good amount of candy before Halloween rolls around. On Thursday, the Presbyterian Church parking lot at 2461 Central Avenue in Twin Falls will have one at 1 PM. On Monday, there will be multiple, including Trick or Treat on Bish's Street from 3 PM to 6 PM at Bish's at 551 Arlen Drive.

Friday, October 28 Through Monday, October 31 - Honoring Loved Ones that Passed On
This may not be something at the top of your list on a holiday weekend, but for those that honor the Day of the Dead, this is a special way to do so in Twin Falls. Horning Loved Ones that have Passed On is a way to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos by allowing access to a free alter to place cards and pictures of loved ones at Crystals Enlight at 132 Hansen St East in Twin Falls. You can purchase cards if you need one. Cards and pictures must be dropped off by October 31 and may be picked up on November 2. If you would like your cards or pictures released in a fire, there will be a fire ceremony on November 3.
Friday, October 28 - Tap House Halloween Bash

With Halloween on Monday, it opens up plenty of options this weekend, including heading up to Boise. If you have littles or love animals, make sure to head to Zoo Boise for Boo at the Zoo.

Food, prizes, drag, and bingo are great ways to spend a Sunday afternoon, and the event is open to all ages. Yellow Brick is located at 136 Main Ave in downtown Twin Falls.
While Halloween may not be here until Monday, that doesn't mean you have to wait until then to begin celebrating. It should be a tad warmer this weekend than the last few days, and if the weather isn't too bad then you should get out and take advantage of it. There are pounds of candy to be had and consumed, and if you don't get it somebody else will. Laugh, trick or treat, go to the zoo, drink some beer, play some bingo, or stay home and binge-watch Halloween movies. Whatever you decide to do this weekend, have fun, be safe, and have a happy Halloween.
