We love taking our kids trick-or-treating at Ghosts on the Banke, to the point that we actually skipped regular neighborhood trick-or-treating last year (the weather wasn't cooperating, and we felt the kids had gotten their fill at Strawbery Banke!). Lots of spooky witches, jack-o-lanterns, and fun special effects, but nothing overly scary for the younger kids. And everyone will get plenty of candy going from house to house.
