Halloween is almost here! Kids are looking forward to their annual sugar high – but parents want to make sure that they go out to trick or treat with some real food in their stomachs. So… how to celebrate the night and score some loot of your own? Here are places where kids eat free on Halloween. These restaurants in Maryland have free or low-cost Halloween promotions, no door knocking required.
Applebee’s: Children in costume under 12 years old can get a free kid’s meal with an adult entree purchase (up to two per family) on Halloween. Applebee’s on Frederick Road in Germantown is a great place where kids eat free on Halloween.
BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse: Get $3 Pizookie desserts through Oct. 31. Here are all the BJ’s locations where kids eat free on Halloween.
Baja Fresh: With the purchase of an adult entree, children can get a free kids meal. People must be
members of “Club Baja.” The Baja Fresh at 302 Kings Farm Blvd in Rockville is my choice for where kids eat free on Halloween!
Baskin Robbins: Enjoy a regular or kid-sized scoop for $1.50 at participating locations. They’ll have seasonal favorites, like pumpkin or “trick Oreo treat” for you to try.
