There are so many Halloween events throughout the state - let's focus on events that are doing things a little differently.  Here are 5 awesome Kentucky events for families to enjoy the friendly BOOs and SCARES of Halloween.

The World's Largest Halloween Party takes place at the Louisville Zoo. While I am sure that many have heard of the event there are bound to be some who weren't aware of the event! The zoo starts this event in early October and it runs through Halloween. You can find more information here. Just a tip it is pretty popular so going earlier in the season works out better in terms of crowds! Tickets are required but you can grab them here!

Kentucky Reptile Zoo Ssssspooktacular takes place on October 14th from 11am - 6pm. Enjoy a tour filled with games, prizes, crafts, and spend some time with snakes and other reptiles from all over the world! Click here for info.

In downtown Bardstown you and your littles can hit the square and collect candy from the local businesses. This event takes place on October 27th and lasts from 4pm until 9pm. Visit for more information or via the Facebook event.

Fort Boonesborough State Park, Richmond - They host a Halloween Lights Drive Thru October 6-28th.  They are sights, sounds and scares of over 1½ miles of Halloween lights and displays - enjoy it all from the comfort of your car. They do it up at the campground also! A $5 donation for the tour will go to the Fort Boonesborough Foundation. For more information call 859-527-3454

Halloween Walk with the Animals at Salato Wildlife Center is October 28th from 1-5pm. It's a family-friendly Trick-or-Treat event so folks are encouraged to dress up. The kids will receive a treat bag to collect candy and a passport which they will take to each of the indoor and outdoor animal booths to receive a treat (or trick!) - fun while learning about the animals. Hay maze, face painting, photo booth and a fishing booth.

**Bonus idea:  (We couldn't stop at five!) Bowling Green Hot Rods is hosting at SPOOKTACULAR event on October 29th from 2-4pm.  It's free. It will feature a haunted clubhouse tour, ride on the carousel, and trick or treating throughout the concourse. They'll also have a costume contest and great prizes.
