Scare up free treats for Halloween

  • Pin It

You're never too old to trick or treat.

For wine.

Halloween is my favorite night of the year. The kids are impossibly cute, the treats are sweet and everyone gets to carry off buckets o' free stuff.

It's the perfect holiday.

To make it even better, I've rounded up a spooktacular list of free eats, treats and deals through Thursday at participating South Florida spots.

Get the kids in their costumes and go grab a free quick bite before wandering the streets looking for handouts. For zombies who hate fast food, there's a few haunts to kick back and relax, too.

Here are the highlights:

Costumes required: On Halloween at Boomers in Dania Beach and Boca Raton, Starter Passes are $5. They're good for three single-use attraction tickets, a $15 savings. For $5 more, upgrade to the Pro Pass. Some restrictions apply. Print coupon at BoomersParks.com.

Boorito benefit: Stop in at Chipotle after 4 p.m. for $3 burritos, bowls, tacos or salads with a costume. Proceeds go to Chipotle Cultivate Foundation. No coupon necessary.

It's a scream: Download the free iOS7 app "Halloween Spooky Sound Box Free" for a phone full of 50 scary sounds with the press of a button, from a witch laugh to a werewolf snarl.

Breakfast for dinner: Kids in costume get free doughnuts at Krispy Kreme and free scary face pancakes at IHOP from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Free kids meals: Olive Garden, Red Lobster, LongHorn, Boston Market, Sweet Tomatoes and Outback are giving away free kids meals with adult entrees purchases with coupons at the links above.

Picture this: Outdoor World in Dania Beach is hosting free Halloween events through Thursday. Get free 4-by-6 photos.

It's so good: The beloved Mr. Food may be gone, but his recipes live on. Visit MrFood.com for a free e-copy of "Spooky Treats and Party Eats: 34 Recipes From the Mr. Food Test Kitchen."

Costume contest: Zona Fresca Mexican Grill is hosting its first contest, offering a $25 gift card at four SoFla ocations for the best dressed, along with 10 percent off checks on Thursday.
