So, it can be said that families in the west of Scotland and across Glasgow will not have any shortage of fun with many places to enjoy Halloween.

The Dog Disco is a fun-laden event that is organized for man’s loyal friend. Your canine friend will be the star of the event and will be the one who will get to dress-up and feel the Halloween spirit.

The best thing about this event is that you won’t have to pay any entry fees. However, you can decide to help the local dog shelters and charities by donating money to the organizers. If you love your dog then just get along with this event and witness how spooky they can be.
3. Eden Mill gin cocktails and Pumpkin Carving
This was one of the most interesting and unique events that had a lot to offer to the people who loved gin and craving pumpkin. This event was hosted by Little Botanica, on the South Side, and everyone who visited and attended the event fall in love with Halloween even more. Just wish that they choose to organize a similar event this year too. If they do, then you will get to enjoy carving pumpkin, no need to worry you will be getting a pre-scooped pumpkin and in addition to that, you will also get required tools for completing your masterpiece.
