Fun Things To Do In Omaha Oct. 30-Nov. 2

Halloween is a whole weekend around these parts (some may say a whole month), and I was tempted to have this list be all Halloween goodness. But, I just couldn’t do it.

Here are three fun things to do this weekend that involve something a little spooky, and one thing for those ready to move on from Halloween:


Baseballoween Bash


When: Tonight, 5 to 8 p.m.

Where: Werner Park, 12356 Ballpark Way, Papillion

Why: Baseball and Halloween? Why not? Head to the stadium for a FREE event featuring trick-or-treating, a haunted house in the press box, crafts and more.

Who’d like this: Baseball fans; kids needing to keep their sugar high going; families on a budget


Halloween at the Children’s Museum
