If you're looking for some family-friendly fun in the Stateline for Halloween, join Anderson Japanese Gardens this October for trick-or-treating in the Gardens!

As a kid, my parents neighborhood had kids living in every single house, so Halloween time was pretty fun up and down our block.  One house, a few blocks over, had a haunted house inside their garage and people running around on stilts in the streets, so I never really left the neighborhood!

SPOOKTACULAR HAUNTS

On Saturday, October 29th starting at 2pm, bring the kiddos to walk the Gardens gathering candy, make crafts at a Halloween station, capture fun photos in their spooky graveyard, and attend a spooky story reading by the Rockford Public Library.

Make sure you dress up, too!  Don't be a party pooper, they want to see your costumes!
