Our listing of Where Kids Can Eat Free this Halloween has been updated for 2018. We first published this listing in 2013. We update it annually to reflect the current year’s information.
Where Kids Can Eat Free this Halloween at local restaurants and eateries!
Halloween is on a Wednesday this year and between Halloween/Ragamuffin Parades, Trunk or Treats and classic Trick or Treating activities our little ones can work up an appetite and their schedule can leave parents with little time to think of meal prep. Some local restaurants and eateries are helping out our favorite trick or treaters by letting them eat for FREE or for reduced prices on Halloween! What could be better?
Please note that some of these locations require costumes be worn, while others don’t. Locations in italics are awaiting confirmation for 2018.
