Officials in the city of Dover announced over the weekend that Trick-or-Treat has been scheduled for Oct. 30, and this event looks like one of a few that will be fun for families.

On Twitter, officials said Trick-or-Treat will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on the 30th.

For people who can't wait to have some fall fun, there will be the third annual Dover Dog Howloween celebration on Oct. 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Rotary Arts Pavilion in Henry Law Park, which is located downtown.

Attendees will be able to visit with over a dozen pet-related vendor booths, get some food, participate in demonstrations, hang out in the "beer pound" and try their luck at winning raffle prizes.

Pet owners and their dogs can even Trick-or-Treat at dog-friendly businesses up and down Central Avenue. For more information, read this article we posted on Friday.

For families interested in taking a road trip to try something different to help celebrate Halloween, Santa's Village in Jefferson, NH, is hosting Merry Trick-or-Treating on Saturdays and Sundays during the month of October. The last day will be Oct. 24.

"Halloween ornaments complement the Christmas decor, and guests are welcome to wear Halloween costumes, or Christmas attire, or dress for a regular day at the park," the website says.

Closer to home, people can take a tour of some of the haunted spots in Portsmouth with writer Roxie Wicker, who operates the tour company New England Curiosities.

The Portsmouth Halloween Parade is a highly anticipated event on the Seacoast. This year's event is planned for Oct. 31 at 7 p.m.

According to their website, the parade is a grassroots celebration where people are invited to dress up, gather at Pierce Island and march through the historic city's downtown.

Hundreds of people typically march in costumes as thousands cheer from the sidelines.
