VW South Florida is back with fun, family-friendly, Halloween events near you.
Billed as South Florida’s #1 Halloween Event & Fall Festival, The Haunt is a themed walk-through at Tree Tops Park in Davie. Beginning October 8th, it will be open Friday and Saturday nights throughout the month of October. There will be multiple themed trails throughout 500,000 square feet of the park. Each trail is different and takes about 15-20 minutes to walk through. The walks just after dusk are fit for families (even kids under 13), while the later times are scarier. There’s also food (by way of food trucks), beer, wine and live entertainment. The Fall Festival portion will be open Oct. 22nd and 29th at 3pm with additional vendors, games, photo ops and activities suitable for entire families. Learn more at FloridaHaunt.com.
