The night is young and full of terrors, so don’t be afraid to live your life to the fullest.

Unlike other holidays in the calendar year, Halloween doesn’t imply expectations to be around the house or with family. It’s that time of the year when one can freely hang out with their friends without care nor curfew.

Here’s a quick guide to mapping out your nights this Halloween season in the Metro.
