Fairytale Town’s 28th Annual Safe and Super Halloween: The Adventures of Percy Jackson is just one of the many spooktacular outings you can join this holiday season. (Photo by Greg Flagg.)

The end of October is quickly approaching and that could only mean that one thing…Halloween is almost here! Like many of you, we at have been anxiously waiting to play dress up, nosh on candy corn and scream at the top of our lungs.

Thankfully the Capital City won’t make us wait until Old Hallow’s Eve to feel the thrills and chills of the season. Check out our Holiday Events page for plenty of spooky (and not-so-spooky) events that will please ghouls and goblins of any age!

So whether you are looking for haunted houses filled with terrors that go bump in the night, kid-friendly trick-or-treat outings, or a party that will blast “Werewolf Bar Mitvizah” on high, we’ve got all of the twisted details.

Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have a happy and safe Halloween!
