After years of adding Halloween events to my monthly events roundups, it’s time to just give Halloween its own post. Here’s a list of events celebrating Halloween in Omaha including Halloween movies, trunk or treats and free activities involving all-things-pumpkin. Most of these Omaha Halloween activities are kid-friendly, but at the end of the post, I included Halloween bar events and concerts.
NOTE: This post was first published in 2018 and is now updated with 2019 Halloween events. If you know of an event to add, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
