If you're looking for some Halloween fun for the kids that's just a short drive away, here's an idea for you; Howl-O-Ween Parties in the Plaza at the Little Rock Zoo.

Don't miss the Howl-O-Ween Party each Saturday in October (except October 23), with great fun on the Plaza as you come dressed up in your Hawl-O-Ween best. You will be amazed at their magic show, show off your best monster mash at the dance party or ride the scardey cat carousel!

Some Alligators In Arkansas You Can Touch - Most You Can't

If you're looking for a great day trip for the whole family may I recommend a fun outing at the Alligator Farm & Petting Zoo in Hot Springs, Arkansas? My wife has been visiting this fun attraction since she was a little girl, we manage to get around to seeing it every couple of years or so and for the most part, it stays pretty much the same, but it's always fun to pet a baby gater.
