Family Friendly Trick or Treating in Atlanta

Halloween is a big deal on our street. It’s one of the reasons we bought our house. There’s a cookout and then ALL the kids go trick-or-treating. I love seeing the costumes and the kids running around. Whether or not you have an awesome trick-or-treating street, there are lots of places to go for trick-or-treating during the month of October. Here are a few. Know more? Tell us about it.
