Halloween activities

Spooktacular Halloween activities

Halloween is a fun and spooky holiday celebrated on October 31st each year. It's a time for dressing up in costumes, indulging in delicious treats, and participating in various activities. 

Here are some popular Halloween activities for you to try out over the next few weeks.


Children and adults alike often dress up in costumes and go door-to-door in their neighbourhoods, collecting sweets and treats (or tricks!) from their neighbours.

Haunted houses

Visit a haunted house attraction for a thrilling and spooky experience. Many local communities and event organisers set up haunted houses during the Halloween season.

Pumpkin carving

Carving pumpkins into Jack-o'-lanterns is a classic Halloween tradition. You can get creative with your designs and lighting arrangements.

Costume parties

Host or attend costume parties where guests can dress up as horror characters, play games, and enjoy themed snacks and drinks.

Corn mazes

Many farms create intricate corn mazes during Autumn, which are a fun and challenging activity to navigate through, and is especially scary at night.

Apple bobbing

Fill a large tub with water and float apples in it. Participants then need to try to grab apples using only their teeth, with their hands behind their backs. Having a cool prize would be a good way to break the ice and get more people involved.

Scary movie marathon

Sit back and enjoy a night of classic horror films or tamer family-friendly movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus and Casper. Don't forget the popcorn if you want the full at home cinema experience!

Arts and crafts

Get creative with Halloween-themed crafts like making paper bats, ghost decorations, or creating your own costumes and masks.

Ghost stories

Gather around a campfire or in a dark room and share spooky ghost stories. This is a great way to set the mood for the frightening month of October.


Bake some Halloween-themed treats like pumpkin pies, mummy hot dogs, or cookies shaped like bats and pumpkins.

Day of the Dead

If you're interested in Mexican culture, you can participate in Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) activities, such as creating sugar skulls or visiting an ofrenda (altar).

Remember to prioritise safety during Halloween activities, especially if you have children. Check the age-appropriateness of events and supervise young trick-or-treaters. 

Enjoy the spooky season and have a "boo"-tiful Halloween!
