You can do goblins or zombies. Visit a harvest festival or a haunted house.
This year's Halloween family-fun options are delightfully diverse, from ghoulish to wonky.
For instance, check out the wicked changes at the Forest Park Petting Zoo in Everett. It's been transformed from a friendly barnyard scene to a "Freak-a-torium," complete with the usual suspects.
