Note: We also compiled a list of Halloween activities for adults. .

We hope you’ve got your costumes ready, your pumpkins carved, and your candy-collecting receptacles ready, kids. Halloween is right around the corner.

We thought it might be nice to put together a list of family-friendly Halloween activities that we know of around town, and provide a place to allow folks to share anything we missed in the comments below.

Neighborhood Trick-or-Treating will take place as usual on Oct. 31, and there are some other opportunities for kids to fill their plastic Jack-O-Lanterns.

Here’s what we know about family-friendly Halloween activities happening in Fayetteville.

Happy (candy) hunting, kids.
