Halloween in Prague for kids 2023

Prague offers a wide range of fun activities for kids and Halloween themed events ranging from pumpkin carving workshops to family-friendly shows and special menus. There are many things to do in Prague for kids on Halloween including exhibitions, autumn harvest workshops, theatrical performances and lampion parades.

Even though Czech kids in Prague do not usually dress up as ghosts, witches, zombies and goblins and do not go door-knocking in the hope of sweets, there is one neighborhood in Prague where they like to light up a kid's smile on Halloween. In Nebušice neighborhood children can experience traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating and for the night feel as if they were in the US. Many residents decorate their houses for that occasion and welcome trick-or-treaters from the whole city.
