I absolutely love Halloween but not being able to drive I feel like I miss out on lots of good events. I’m sure there are so many events that are close by I just never know of them (can you relate?). Here’s a list of what’s on this Halloween in and around Caerphilly.
Do you take your little one trick or treating or do you prefer to go to events?
