Halloween in Atlanta is always an excellent time to celebrate fall, eat tons of candy, and don awesome masks (think spooky, not quarantine). There are so many Atlanta Halloween events this year it's also impossible to show up at everything. But don't worry—we've rounded up some of our favorite Atlanta happenings that will have you screaming for joy (and fright)!

We've compiled a list of events for families that include a twilight trek through the Atlanta Zoo, a Halloween hike at the Chattahoochee Nature Center, a massive pumpkin festival at Stone Mountain Park, a monster scavenger hunt in Little Five Points, and more. 

Read on for a sweet treat—our favorite Halloween events in Atlanta—and the trick is to put them in your activity calendar. In the meantime, check out our roundup of Atlanta's best pumpkin patches, fall festivals, and other October events in our Fall Guide for fun.
