Halloween Weekend Things To Do in Connecticut: Hauntings, Drive-Ins, Costume Parades

Happy Hallo-Weekend, Connecticut! It’s no trick: Halloween is not going to look the same as years past. But if you plan accordingly, this weekend is filled with a ton of treats! I mean, how many other weekends can you take a spooky stroll through the Forest of Fear, wear a costume to a drive-in theater, or trunk or treat at Mount Misery? This is Halloween 2020! Our calendar is filled with many creative trick-or-treating alternatives that will make this year one for the memory (and photo) books.

Looking for even more seasonal fun? It's high time to go pumpkin picking, get lost in a corn maze, or enjoy one of our favorite Halloween activities. Just remember to bring your Halloween-themed kids' face masks and practice social distancing. If you're staying in, create Netflix's interactive haunted house at home, or take a look at our roundup of free October virtual events and classes to stream from home. As always, keep tabs on our Connecticut events calendar for daily updates on local activities as well as virtual opportunities for family fun.

While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and maintaining appropriate distance. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our events calendar to find something else to do.
