If you're a parent like me, getting as much mileage as you can from your child's Halloween costume is always a good thing. You spent good money and time on that thing, you need to show it off as much as possible.

Here's one event I'm adding to my family's Halloween fun to-do list, and hopefully you will too!

Where: Anderson Japanese Gardens at 319 Spring Creek Rd. 

When: Saturday, October 28, 2017 3 to 5 p.m.
