I am considering this weekend Officially to be  Halloween Part 1. 

Next weekend will be Halloween Weekend Part 2 (although it is actually Halloween weekend).  The list of events that I have embedded in this post is actually all happening this weekend.  My head is spinning trying to figure out how to get to as many of them as I can!  I know it’s silly, but I think we should see how many times we can wear out costumes this year.  I think we are going for a record.

How you can help keep this site running.  I will admit it, I need your help!  I know it’s a blatant plea for money, but you can help!

The Week Ahead Events List for South Florida 10/24/13

Boo at the Zoo Palm Beach Zoo

 Boo at the Zoo Palm Beach Zoo
We had a crazy weekend last weekend.  On Friday we headed out to Boo at the Zoo at the Palm Beach Zoo, which is always a great time.  The Zoo decorations were really good this year, with “spider web” stretched out along most of the fences.

We also went to the Boca Raton Community Gardens Trick or Treat so others can eat.  ItBoca Raton Community Garden was so amazing!  The event was a huge success, with all kinds of old fashioned games and activities for the kids.  Of course there was a bounce house and most importantly, the club raised over 2000 pounds of food for the food pantry.

If you tried to do any outdoor activities last weekend you probably noticed the brutal heat and humidity.  As I write this the weather man is on the TV announcing a cool front so this weekend should be a little more comfortable for doing some outside activities. The list is hugely long and I am sad to see the end of the Halloween/ Fall Festivals for the year. I am going to try to get to as many as possible!

As for my pick of the week, well I can’t even choose which ones to go to myself!  EverStella & Dot Shop for a Causey time I decide on one, I change my mind.  My best advice is to get to as many as you can!

 

Also our sponsor Stella & Dot is doing a special show for October.  Shop for a Cause.  100% percent of the proceeds from the Breast Cancer Awareness Boutique will be donated to Noren Fraser Foundation Supporting Women’s Cancer Research.  10% of the proceeds of all other purchases will also be donated to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)  in the fight against blood cancers.

One last thing,  I wanted to share the Checklist put out by the Boca Raton Police Department for Halloween Safety.  It is a good reminder for all of us no matter where we live, so take a moment and read it.

Don’t forget about Haunted Nights at Flamingo Gardens and take advantage of Money Saver Mondays to see the Scarecrows!
