What happens in Apex during the spookiest time of the year? Here are a few things you should know!


In Apex, kids typically do their trick-or-treating on the day that Halloween is nationally recognized (October 31st), no matter what day of the week it falls on. The town does not set a date for trick-or-treating. All ages are welcome to trick-or-treat.
