Most Wichita kids will get their official, for-real trick-or-treating in on Thursday night – the actual Halloween.
But they can also get in practice runs, and get more mileage out of their costumes, at several not-so-scary pre-Halloween trick-or-treating events being put on by local venues.
Following is information about some of them:
Attendees should wear their costumes and bring their treat bags. But they should not count on seeing the animals. Although they might spot giraffes and elephants, the majority of the animals will not be on display.
Tickets are $6 in advance at area QuikTrip stores or are available at the gate for $6 for members, $8 for nonmembers. Children 2 and younger do not need a ticket.

The event, a fundraiser for the theater, is designed for kids ages 10 and younger, and they’re encouraged to wear their costumes. Tickets are $6 a person at the door. The theater will serve pizza a half-hour before the 7 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday shows, but it’s $1.50 a person extra, and people must make pizza reservations in advance by calling 316-262-2282.
The event, which usually attracts between 600 and 1,000 people, also will include a magician and appearances by the Headless Horseman, the wicked witch from “Hansel and Gretel” and dancers possessed by Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” There also will be a Halloween-themed gunfight and s’mores-making around a campfire.
Admission is $5 a person, though members and children ages 3 and younger will be admitted free. For information call 316-350-3323 or visit www.oldcowtown.org.
Admission is regular museum admission, which is $8.95 general, $7.65 for ages 60 and over, $6.95 for ages 4 to 12, and free for ages 3 and younger. Family passes for two adults and two kids also are available $28.50. For more information, visit www.worldtreasures.org.
