On Hallows eve, the town will be bustling,
While leaves overhead in trees start rustling
There’s goblins, ghosts, grim reapers galore,
and, a Halloween in Bucks County that will make you want more.
With happy hours, beer tasting, dinners and drinks to make you feel merry,
There’s no reason to stay home during a weekend so fun (and so scary)!
1. No Place Like Home Yappy Hour
Fri, Oct. 30, 5-10 pm, 600 Rockhill Dr, Bensalem, PA
A happy hour with adoptable pups seems like any animal lover’s dream come true. If you join the Women’s Humane Society for a Wizard of Oz “Yappy Hour,” on October 30, from 5-10 pm, you can experience just that. It will be a night of food and drink specials, meet and greet with the pups, and you can come dressed in your best “Wizard of Oz” inspired costumes. Dance the night away with a guest DJ and have a blast, while supporting a good cause of homeless and needy animals in the community.
Yappy Hour vouchers will be available for purchase prior to the event, which can be used for either a complimentary drink (beer, wine, or martini) or appetizer of your choosing. During the event, guests can make a donation of any amount towards the Women’s Humane Society’s animals and they’ll receive 25% off of their entire bill for the night as a “thank you” for their support.
