Eek!  It’s Halloween in Cleveland!

The good folks at in partnership with The Plain Dealer, put together an amazing and extensive list of Halloween activities in our area.  There are so many different options – from scary movies to not-so-scary activities for families with little ones.  We can’t decide where to start!


So, again, hats off to for giving us so many fun events, movies, costume contests, fall festivals and xx to pick from.  Here’s just a sampling of what they put together:


“Rocky Horror Picture Show” at Blank Canvas Theatre

Actors have been bringing the cult classic, “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” to life at movie theaters for years. Now they take it to the stage at this production at Blank Canvas Theatre at 78th Street Studios.

Oct. 6-28


Boo at the Zoo

It’s all treats and no tricks for families who flock to this beloved annual Halloween event. This year’s party among the animals features 4-D theater shows, candy stations, carousel and train rides.

Fridays through Sundays, Oct. 13-29

5-9 p.m.


Illusion Unlimited: And for the animal lovers among us, here’s a great idea that came to us courtesy of the Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society! They are urging everyone to make conscious candy choices this Halloween. What does that mean?  Well, at their Halloween celebration, the Palm Beach Zoo is only offering candy from manufacturers that are a part of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil – RSPO or who follow comparable sustainability practices.  The harvesting of palm oil in Southeast Asia is one of the biggest threats to animals like the Malayan tigers they have at their zoo and a lot of other animals as well.
