Best Halloween Events for Connecticut Kids in 2021

Connecticut kills it on Halloween: Kids and families are never far from a haunted house or ghost trail, a costume parade, or a trick-or-treat event. Towns and businesses get extra creative, planning spooky and sweet seasonal fun for families. Over the next few weeks, kids can experience walk-through haunted petting zoos, drive-thru Halloween events, and even some carving and costume parties to celebrate Halloween.

Be sure to browse our Connecticut Halloween Guide for more October fun, and our Fall Fun Guide for Families.
