When I first moved to Manhattan, KS in 1998, I realized how much they love to celebrate. Halloween is no exception, I do not ever remember having this many opportunities as a kid to trick or treat in my hometown. I have worked up a list for you to take your ghosts and goblins to start loading up on candy and family fun this year for Halloween.
You will definitely want to pay attention to the dates and I have linked the various events on the website or pages to confirm there have been no adjustments. I mean, it's Kansas so who knows what the weather will be like in a couple of weeks!
While I did my best, I am sure I missed a few, there are seriously so many! As always, feel free to comment below if you know of one that is coming up so we all can share in the fun!
