We’ve Planned the Perfect (Warm & Dry) West Michigan Halloween For You
The forecast for Halloween in West Michigan isn't looking great. With the high temperature expected to only be 43 degrees, and rain (and possibly snow) in the forecast, we decided that families might need a warmer, drier Halloween option.
So, we scoured the internet, and called some of our friends, and came up with a perfect Halloween night for West Michigan families that will keep them warm and dry!
You don't want to deprive the kids of the fun of trick-or-treating, but neither they nor you will be happy trudging around in the cold and rain. So, instead of walking the neighborhood knocking on doors, head out to one of the many places in West Michigan that are hosting indoor trick-or-treat events. Woodland Mall, Coopersville United Methodist Church, and Jenison Bible Church are all hosting indoor events on Tuesday.
Chuck E. Cheese is giving 50 free tickets to any kid who comes in dressed up in their costume (this has actually been happening all month). Play some skeeball, get some prizes, AND stay dry.
Redbox is offering a free movie rental by texting RETURN to 727272. You can rent a scary movie like "The Exorcist", or "The Shining", or go a little more family-friendly with "Beetlejuice", "Casper", or "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown".
You can reserve your movie ahead of time at Redbox.com.
Tons of restaurants are offering deals for kids and parents on Halloween. One of our favorites we've come across is this offering from Brann's Steakhouse & Grille. You can get a $1.50 kids' meal with the purchase of an adult entree. So, mom and dad can get their sizzling steaks, and the kids can choose from mini cheeseburgers, mac & cheese, chicken tenders, grilled cheese, or a flatbread pizza!
The offer is good for dine in or carry out at any Brann's location on Tuesday, October 31. (Get the coupon here.)
