5 fun things to do on Halloween that don’t require being outside

Halloween Thursday could be a rainy night in metro Atlanta

We're tracking a possible rainy and stormy night

It’s shaping up to be a rainy night for trick-or-treating in metro Atlanta, and that could mean lots of sad, little faces (and big faces, for that matter), on Halloween.

Fortunately, Atlanta is full of fun, indoor options for the spookiest night of the year. Here are some alternatives to a possibly soggy night of trick-or-treating:

A Spooktacular Night by the Georgia Aquarium 

Trick-or-treat in each gallery of the Georgia Aquarium. Families can also enjoy crafts, a photo station and other Halloween-inspired entertainment. Plus, with each paying adult admission, children under 12 who arrive in costume will receive free admission 4-8 p.m. Thursday. Starting at $26.95. Georgia Aquarium, 225 Baker St.
