Fall Fun and Halloween 2013

First off, if y’all are new in town, Prince William County Trick or Treating takes place ON HALLOWEEN.  I get a bijillion emails every year that Halloween is on a weeknight asking if it’s moved to the following or preceeding weekend, and it’s not. Sorry, teachers, because I’m sure those sugared-up, over-tired kids are a hot mess on November 1. Second, this is by no means an exhaustive list, and if I’m missing your event, just email me, and we’ll fix it!
