Halloween Weekend Things To Do in New Jersey: Parades, Parties, and More
It's a weekend full of chills and thrills as Halloween finally arrives. Scare up some treats at these preschool-friendly Halloween events, an outdoor trunk-or-treat in West Orange, and a spooky scavenger hunt at Fosterfields Historic Farm. It's your last chance to enjoy the life-like dinos at the Meadowlands plus popular seasonal events at Six Flags Hallowfest and Skylands Stadium's Jack-o'-Lantern Experience.
Halloween is on, according to the governor. Still, if you'd like to stay close to home, we've rounded up creative, fun alternatives to trick-or-treating, plus easy pumpkin carving ideas and giggle-inducing Halloween jokes. For an extra-special seasonal treat, Netflix is helping you transform your home into a virtual haunted house.
As always, you can find even more things to do in our Event Calendar. 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 practicing social distancing. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
