Celebrate Her-o-ween! Fun events (for everyone) in Northern Virginia on Saturday, October 26

You’ve heard of Galentine’s Day, right? Well, a lot of Halloween fun is happening this Saturday, October 26 all over Northern Virginia.

I think we should call this day “Her-o-ween.”

Her-o-ween is the chance to go out with your squad on the most fun day before Halloween occurs and make some memories. With combined efforts, your costumes, makeup and hair are going to be fabulous. Instagram-worthy.

And if you don’t want to celebrate with your gal pals, here are some family-friendly events, as well.

Check out these fun events happening in Northern Virginia on Saturday, October 26. For even MORE events on October 26 and other days, check out my full Halloween month calendar.
