Growing up in Nampa, Halloween was never a huge deal to me. I was an only child and my parents never got into it--so, it wasn't that I had anything against Halloween but rather no real motivation to get into it and form traditions.

That said, every Halloween there are tons of events all across the Treasure Valley for kids, adults, and families alike aside from just trick-or-treating.

If you live in Caldwell, maybe this event will sound exciting to you and your kids! Pardon my ignorance but I had no idea that the Caldwell Police Department held this event annually! Head over to the O'Connor Field House on the Canyon County Fairgrounds on Halloween from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. for all sorts of free family fun put on by the police department!
