Fun Family and Kids Halloween Events in Flint & Genesee County

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.

I love to celebrate all month long in October and I make sure my family takes advantage of all the free and low cost fun there is to be had before the cold weather turns us into hibernating bears who don't want to go and do anything.

Here's a list of all the activities I found that are free and very low cost in and around Genesee County- many right here in Flint

On the second and fourth Saturday of every month Lowes has a free kid's building workshop at 10 am.

This month the building projects have Halloween themes.

On Saturday October 9 they are building a funhouse mirror

On October 23 they are making a Flapping Bat

You can learn more about the Lowe's Build and Grow programs, sign up, or find a Lowes in your area by going to

Michaels stores are having a lot of Halloween theme fun activities some are free make it take it crafts while others cost a small fee for purchasing supplies- almost always under $5

Some of the events at Michaels stores include decorating t-shirts, treat bags and mask making

For-Mar Nature Preserve is having fall family wagon wides for just $2 a person on Sat October 16 and Saturday October 23 Wagon rides are at 9am, 11 am and 1 pm.

Frankenmuth River Place is having a Scarecrow Fest full of fun kids events Sat and Sun October 16 and 17- it lists the following weekend 23 & 24 too but according to the brochure most all the events will be the 16 & 17.

The Genesee Valley Mall is holding a costume parade and mall wide trick or treating event Saturday, October 23 from 11:00am-1:00pm in Center Court. Trick or treating starts at 12 pm, you must line up in center court to participate

Courtland Center is having trick or treating on Saturday October 30 but as of right now there is no time listed for the event

If you know of any other free or low cost Halloween/Fall family events please let me know and I'll add them to my list of things to do
