Halloween Events

With just 2 days left until Halloween there are spooky events everywhere! It may not be the weekend yet, but you could still spend the remaining days and nights going to haunts, pumpkin patches, and a vicious variety of Halloween events. Not sure what’s going on in your area? Here are some websites that will help you get your spook on no matter where you live.

Looking for some specific spooky fun?

haunted houses and haunted attractions
Haunted Attractions range from amateur haunts in your neighbors front yard to huge haunted mazes created by the pros. Major cities usually have a handful of options, but smaller towns also have their share of events, too. Check out HauntedHouse.com for one in your neighborhood.

Find a local Pumpkin Patch
You haven’t carved your jack-o-lanterns yet? Get thee to a pumpkin patch! These kid friendly events – pumpkin patches, corn maze, hayrides, etc. – make a great day trip for the family or a trick-or-treating alternative. You can spend some time outside in the crisp Autumn air and partake in fair-like activities such as face painting, bounce houses, and petting zoos.

 

 

For a scare from the other side, visit a truly haunted house. RealHaunts.com has an extensive list of haunted places ranging from houses, businesses, schools, bridges, places in nature, and yes even cemeteries. Users can submit suggestions for haunted places as well as leave comments and stories about their experiences.

With less than a week to go until the Big Day, all things mundane seem to undergo a spooky transformation. Our pretty pumpkins become grimacing jack-o-lanterns and even offices and schools are decked with bat decorations or a few flying witches. Why not food, too? Here are a few healthy Halloween snacks to make your lunchtime into a freakishly fun meal.

healthy Halloween skull sandwich
Calavera Sandwich
Celebrate Dia de los Muertos early with this cute and easy Skull Sandwich. Inspired by the symbolic skulls (calaveras) that are used to celebrate the Day of the Dead, this impressive looking sandwich uses just a few ingredients and is easy enough for kids to make. They will love arranging the dried fruit and nuts in creative patterns.

healthy Halloween watermelon brain
Watermelon Brain
Here’s a clever 1 ingredient recipe sure to please zombies and fruit lovers alike. And how can you not love a recipe with instructions like “With a sharp paring knife, carve channels out of melon to resemble cortical folds”? Serve with a butchers knife and you’ve got an easy and fun to serve healthy Halloween party food.

healthy Halloween bananas
Boo-nanners
Another ridiculously easy recipe that transforms fruit into a spooky and fun snack. There are a few more healthy Halloween recipes from GoneRaw.com that feature whole foods, all of which I’m dying to try.

Halloween potion labels
I’ll bet your potion cupboard could use a little added mystery. Whose doesn’t? Download these magical and menacing potion labels from Love Manor and have your glue stick at the ready. Transform your spice jars and empty booze bottles into such concoctions as Life Renewal Potion, Scrumptious Earth Worms, and our favorite, Snake Oil. They all have a gorgeously designed, decaying vintage look.

For a next to free alternative, some Dollar Tree stores have a ghastly collection of potion labels, too.
