13 Family-Friendly Activities of Halloween

Santa's Stables

One of the greatest feelings is making memories with your loved ones. 

Are you interested in fall festivals? Don’t worry, there are tons! Some include the Spencer County Octoberfest, Fall Heritage Days Rendezvous, and Mt. Zion’s Applefest.

Watch the leaves change at Lincoln State Park during the Friends Fall Frolic, nominated as one of the Best in Indiana for state parks and recreation areas. Or, spend Sunday painting pumpkins and taking a hayride during Kid’s Days at Pumpkins and More Farm Market.

Looking for a spooky time? Frightful but family-friendly Halloween events include ghosts, games and activities, and suspense at the “Ghostbusters” movie night! And a ghost story featuring the headless horseman at a lantern-lit reading for All Hallows’ Eve.

Celebrate the season during the Harvest Party at Monkey Hollow Winery and Distillery. Plus, enjoy live music there and at Pepper’s Ridge Winery every Saturday this month!

Don’t miss Holiday World’s Happy Halloween Weekends on Saturdays and Sundays this time of the year. Enjoy the main attractions you love, plus tons of fall-themed extras! Or take a scenic horseback ride and enjoy the crisp autumn breeze at Santa’s Stables.
