Candy and costumes take a starring role Oct. 31, and north Fulton has a plethora of events to get kids — and adults — ready for the tricks and treats.

Autrey Mill in Johns Creek will be hosting Spooky Mill, an opportunity for children to dress up and enjoy candy, activities and crafts on Oct. 26 and 27 from 5 to 9 p.m.

“It’s an all-ages event, perfect for all kids,” Autrey Mill staff member Michael Hanft said. “We’ll have fun and safe trick-or-treating and we encourage kids to come in their costumes.”

Hanft said the event and the trick or treating is free. They will also have attractions that will cost 1 to 3 tickets, which will be available for purchase.

“New this year we’re setting up a spooky candy store,” Hanft said. The store will include eyeball gum drops and mud pies with gummy worms.

“All those proceeds go right back into Autrey Mill,” Hanft said.

Oct. 26 Autrey Mill will also be sponsoring Jr. Spooky Mill for children ages 5 and under from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This will include simple crafts, fun and games.

Autrey Mill is at 9770 Autrey Mill Road in Johns Creek.
