Halloween 2017: Miami’s Best Events for Teens

Halloween weekend is upon us! So for now, I hope to relieve the stress and questions of “Where should I go with my teen?” or “What events should I trust my teen to attend?”

Below is a list of Miami’s Halloween events from cheapest to more expensive, so you and your teen can make awesome plans for this year!

Free Events:

Halloween on the Mile – Tuesday, October 31st from 4:00PM – 7:00PM

Miracle Mile celebrates their 20th year celebrating Halloween on the Mile for all ages. Bring your teen, younger children, and dog to trick or treat, enjoy arts & crafts, and a doggie costume contest.

Halloween Spooktacular at Sunset Place – Tuesday, October 31st from 4:00 PM – 7:00PM

Sunset Place is offering a Monster Mash Dance Party, Spooky candy stations, and more. Although this may be too “kiddy” for your teen, if you have younger children this may be a good starter for the night before your teen attends a friend’s house or another event. Not to mention, Sunset place also has a bowling alley (Splitsville) and GameTime for a family fun night out!

For more information:

Spooktacular Halloween Party at Dolphin Mall – Tuesday, October 31st 5:30PM – 9:30PM

For a later night of fun, Dolphin Mall extends their Halloween hours until 9:30PM. Your teen will be able to trick or treat around the mall, enjoy the party, and stay out a little longer! Bonus: Cabo flats will be offering “Kids eat free all day, happy hour all day, and giveaways!”
