Children can meet characters from their favorite fables each year at Storybook Forest, a "not-so-scary" event that is one of the top Halloween happenings in the Oklahoma City metro area. Designed for children 10 and under, in full costume if they so choose, Storybook Forest takes place over a week in late October and features a tree-lined trail where kids collect candy and visit scenes from classic tales such as the "Three Little Pigs" and "Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater."
