Tricks, Treats & Halloween Beats: Where To Celebrate Halloween 2018 In Las Vegas

Halloween 2018 is right around the corner. Do you know how you’re celebrating? It’s time to start making plans …unless you want to sit around all night handing out candy to sticky trick-or-treaters (it doesn’t get much scarier than that).

This Halloween, don’t get stuck at home with your hand in the candy bowl. From mouthwatering sweets to the sickest beats, here are some of the most frighteningly fun ways to spend Halloween 2018 in Las Vegas.
