Celebrate this Halloween weekend in style by wearing your spookiest costume to your local Shake Shack and receive a free scoop of creamy frozen custard.
This Saturday Oct. 31 and Sunday Nov. 1 both of Philadelphia’s Shake Shack locations will be giving away free frozen custard to those wearing creative costumes. It’s kind of like trick-or-treating for adults — but with ice cream.
You can visit either Center City at 2000 Sansom Street near Rittenhouse Square or University City at 3200 Chestnut Street in Chestnut Square.
You're never too old to dress up for halloween -- especially when free custard is involved.

Sure, they’re saying that this is a welcome to “fall and camping season,” and they’re calling it their Campout Layer Shake, but what we’re talking about here is essentially a drinkable s’more and that sounds pretty summery to us.
All the details, right this way…
