A new Halloween tradition in the city, Old Falls Street’s Monster Mash Breakfast, is back for its fourth year downtown.

This year’s activities include:
• A “Boo-tacular” breakfast buffet

• Age-appropriate haunted house
• Halloween arts and crafts
• Halloween-themed games
• Bounce house
• A visit by Walter C. Falls, the Old Falls Street, USA mascot
• Prizes and much more
Tickets are $6 for children aged 12 and under, $9 for adults, and $8 for seniors aged 65 and over. Advance tickets are now on sale and can be purchased by visiting the main office at The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls (located inside the entrance off Third Street)
Aquarium event set for Saturday night
The Aquarium of Niagara, 701 Whirlpool St., is hosting its Halloween event from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday night.
You might see a bat, a witch’s hat or big black cat arching its back, or even better, a shark with sharp teeth, an octopus with eight tentacles or maybe a starfish with five arms. Any child dressed as one of these sea creatures or any other marine animal will be admitted free. Adults and all other children will get a discounted admission of $5.
Youngsters, who “trick-or-treat” at the aquarium, will find lots to do and see. Each child will receive a small “treat bag” full of surprises. While enjoying the Halloween fun at the aquarium, they will also create a craft to take home.
