Fall fun in Miami thrills the young and young at heart with a wide variety of cool Halloween events for the whole family. Put on your favorite costumes and get ready to trick-or-treat around town or enjoy family friendly Halloween parties and visits to pumpkin patches. Here’s your kid-friendly Halloween guide.

Halloween on Lincoln Road

For a classic Miami Halloween celebration, come out to South Beach’s Lincoln Road on Halloween night when the pedestrian promenade becomes a catwalk for some of the most outrageous and creative Halloween costumes you’ve ever seen. Always a hot spot for people watching, Lincoln Road is a true feast for the eyes on Halloween. Come out with the whole family dressed in your best costume and join the walking parade. You can always stop for a bite to eat at one of the sidewalk cafes to rest and refuel. For families, it’s a good idea to come early as the party grows rowdy later in the night.
