Best Halloween Events for Connecticut Kids in 2020

Connecticut sort of owns Halloween: Kids and families are never far from a haunted house or ghost trail, a costume parade, or a trick-or-treat event. That's even true this fall, as towns and businesses are getting extra creative to plan spooky and sweet seasonal fun for families with safety in mind. Over the next couple weeks, kids can experience walk-through "haunted" petting zoos, drive-thru pumpkin displays, and even some socially distanced carving and costume parties to celebrate a 2020-style Halloween.

Be sure to browse our Connecticut Halloween Guide for more October fun, and check back to this post over the course of the month as we update our list of Halloween events and activities.
