Fall into Bloomsburg: Things to do this Fall

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Bloom U chapter.

It’s time to slip into your fuzzy socks, light your favorite pumpkin scented candle and mix up some hot chocolate because the fall season is in full-force! Aside from Freeform’s 31 nights of Halloween, there’s tons to do this fall in the Bloomsburg area that won’t break your bank! 


Delightfully Frightful

Delightfully Frightful is perfect for families with children! According to a Facebook event page;

“Delightfully Frightful is a musical haunted attraction for all ages! Join us for this frightfully fun concert where ghoulishly attired musicians and entertainers will be sure to give you a scare and where special guests are sure to excite. We will have guest conductors, soloists, vocalists, and visual presentations that will raise the dead and the hair on your neck! Come along on a musical journey in celebration of All Hallows Eve! Don your best costume, come one hour early for trick-or-treating plus a special Haunted Hall Musical Instrument “Petting Zoo,” and then take your seat in the Concert Hall for a program of goosebump-inducing favorites!

Also known as “Pennsylvania’s toxic ghost town,” the town of Centralia is a thirty-minute drive from Bloomsburg University. The Centralia mine fire has been burning underneath the borough since at least May 27, 1962. Townies claim that the town may be haunted; sharing stories of voices. One resident claims they heard a voice telling them to “leave this town.” When visiting the real-life Silent Hill, being cautious is a must due to opening sink holes and smoke inhalation. You can now visit (at your own risk) Graffiti Highway and see the abandon houses, but don’t forget; the fire is still burning under the town.


Rohrbachs’ Farm

From wine and cider to sunflowers and pumpkins; this family owned farm is just fifteen minutes from the university. Inside, they have fresh produce, a bakery, homemade fudge and a Barn Loft gift shop. This fall they have free public hayrides along with pay-as-you-go pony rides, corn mazes, pick your own pumpkins and food trucks.

“Visitors can experience tasty treats, thrilling games, freaktastic attractions and, of course, a selection of Knoebels’ hallo-riffic rides. We have gentle haunts, scary attractions and treats to suit everyone’s taste. There are even special treat stops for children 12 and under in costume!
