Looking for something for the kids to do on Halloween that doesn't involve them wandering about the neighborhood in the dark? (Scary!) No worries. There are plenty of wholesome things happening around town to entertain ghouls of all ages. For example, once again the Minnesota Zoo is hosting HallZOOween Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Guests can enjoy low-scare trick-or-treating, live music, and crafts. There's also Scarecrow Alley at the zoo, which features scarecrows created with an animal influence in mind.
Oct. 24-25, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 31, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., 2009
