ABC takes great pride in our communities, and we like to celebrate the uniqueness of each of the areas we operate in. Halloween is almost upon us, and if you’re still unsure of your plans on October 31st, or the days leading up to it, the D.C. area has plenty to offer both children and adults. Here are a few of the choices that caught our eye.
Hallowmarine is a special one night only attraction at the National Aquarium with face painting, a costume contest, spooky scavenger hunt, animal trivia with prizes, and a real live (musical) band of pirates. Catch Hallowmarine on October 27th.
Another one night only attraction is the Silver Spring Zombie Walk, wherein anyone with an urge to shuffle and eat brains can join in the fun. The assemblage of the undead starts around 8, and they’re closing out the night with screenings of the films Grindhouse and Shaun of the Dead at the AFI theater.
If you want to celebrate Halloween and get a bit more culture, the Washington Ballet is performing Dracula from October 24th through November 4th. Tickets are on sale now at the Kennedy Center’s website.
Want to go trick-or-treating in a decidedly wild place? Then check out Boo at the Zooat the National Zoo, October 26th-28th. There are more than 30 treat stations throughout the zoo and they even include a treat bag with your admission.
There is a great indoor trick-or-treating option at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum with the Air & Scare on October 27th. Kids can participate in crafts, spooky science experiments, and get their picture taken with characters from Star Wars.
Regardless of what you decide to do on this Halloween holiday, we wish you a safe but scary celebration!
