Dancing in a parade of adorable Minions dressed up as mummies, Frankenstein and other creatures?  Count me in! For the first time, Universal Studios is doing a day-time Halloween event that’s family-friendly.

We recommend catching the daily Minion Monsters Tricky Treats Parade where you get to party with your favourite Minion characters dressed in “scary” outfits. The second best part of the parade? As they dance along Universal Studios’ Hollywood Zone, their witchy friends bring out a large float filled with piles of Halloween sweets. Do not hesitate to grab handfuls, maybe even armfuls, of these treats. Sure, one of the minions might chase after you if you’re too greedy, but if this really happens, just give them a hug and take a selfie.

Halloweeen is definitely the best time to visit Universal Studios. You not only get to enjoy all the rides, you also get to experience these additional festivities around! For example, check out the Halloween Carnival where you can win giant neon worms and banana plushies at game booths, or meet our favourite furry trolls - Elmo and Abby from Sesame Street right outside Spaghetti Chase Race. 

Before you go, watch "Trick or Treat with Sesame Street" live musicals performed by Count von Count, Ernie and Bert, Elmo and friends. As they sing and dance, embrace the heartwarming themes and tunes of friendship and kindness!
