Kids Activities in Taipei – Halloween Trick or Treating
Every year my daughter and I (and a few friends) venture up into Yangmingshan for a bit of trick-or-treating, looking of course for kids activities in Taipei for Halloween. After many years of dwindling spooky residences, last year, 2018, in the area known for expat housing connected to the US military, appeared to be no longer holding an annual trick-or-treating event.
Friends talked about the kids activities and festivities taking place for Halloween in Tianmu, so this year we’re going to take the journey by MRT/bus to see what it’s all about. So we’ll post some pictures of tomorrow’s event here after the fact.
