    Another great thing to do at Halloween is remembering to give back and raise awareness, just $5 can give a child toothpaste, a toothbrush and preventive oral health education! Check out this link to set up your personal virtual fundraising page and invite your friends and family to Trick or Treat for America's Toothfairy! http://bit.ly/rj2K08

    Grant's Farm's website says $5 per person and children 2 and under are free…..

    Kate – the per person fee is if you walk up to Grants Farm instead of driving. (its so that all of the people who live closeby also have to pay something). If you pay the parking there is no admission fee.
