Spooky season is here, and there’s no shortage of great Halloween events in Westchester and the Hudson Valley. Whether you have thrill-seeking teens or pumpkin-loving toddlers, we’ve got plenty of options for your brood.
Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown are prime Halloween destinations owing to their pride in being the home of Washington Irving and the setting of his famed The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Throughout the region, haunted attractions abound for the older set, including a forest trail at a historic haunted hotel, while little ones can delight in friendly fun like Monster Mash-inspired brick-or-treating at Legoland New York or a visit with costumed alpacas. Meanwhile, the whole family can enjoy the new Pumpkin World attraction in Rockland, as well as Westchester's most celebrated Halloween event, the Great Jack-o'-Lantern Blaze.
