Busy Bees is bringing their magical birthday parties to you! More details here.
Saturdays and Sundays only– 10:00am-6:00pm-: Eye Spy Train at Wheaton
All aboard the Wheaton Eye Spy Halloween Train! NO LONGER HAUNTED! This “not so scary” train ride is fun for the whole family – it’s all about fun, not fright! Each child will receive an Eye Spy card before boarding the train. As you ride through the woods of Wheaton Regional Park, look all around to find Halloween friends hiding, and mark them off the Eye Spy card. They’ll have fun Halloween activities in the Train Station Party Room, where snacks will also be available for purchase. Costumes are encouraged! Please bring a canned food donation for your neighbors in need – they’ll donate them to Mid-County United Ministries in Wheaton. [Read more…]
I can’t count the number of times our son wore his “Max” costume from Where the Wild Things Are. Between parades, school, special celebrations and on Halloween he got lots of practicing saying, “Let the wild rumpus start”! Here’s a guide that will help your child get mileage out of their costume(s) this year. Of course, check out our guide to Festivals and Orchards, as many of them have a special Halloween celebration as well as their day-to-day happenings. DC Library also will have a variety of Halloween celebrations, including Creepy Crafts & Pumpkin Decorating! Check out Facebook and Instagram for updated events.

Seven reasons to LOVE Busy Bees:
Everything at BusyBees moves, spins, or flies! Flying balloons, spinning climbing apparatuses, light up slides and more.
- Nut free! Snacks for sale.
They offer fun and adorably themed parties.
In-N-Out-N-In… your admission covers you all day during open play.
Sparkling Clean C-O-N-S-T-A-N-T-L-Y! Thanks to Dapple natural cleaning products.
Complimentary coffee/tea for the sleep deprived.
Free wifi with chairs for adults outside of the play area. A gate separates the play area from the seating area, my kids thought they were “locked” in– it was glorious!
Everyone requires socks at all times: no shoes / bare-feet.
Everyone requires a signed waiver before playing– once you sign it, your waiver is good forever.
Have fun! Play hard! Nap even harder afterwards!
