As we near the end of October, I hope everyone has had a chance to celebrate the spooky season. October is my favorite month since the leaves start changing and I can finally binge-watch horror movies all weekend long. I’ve compiled a list of activities you can do to celebrate the final weeks of spook season.
- Pumpkin Patch
Visit a pumpkin patch with friends or on your own. Not only does this support your local farms, but you also can enjoy a nice time picking out pumpkins for various uses. Pumpkins are great for decorations, cooking, photoshoots, and carving.
- Pumpkin Carving
After you visit your local pumpkin patch you can channel your inner artist and create simple or elaborate designs on your pumpkins. Invite some friends and hold a pumpkin carving contest. Save the seeds from each pumpkin and enjoy some delicious pumpkin seeds.
If you’re into the thrill of spooky season, head over to a haunted attraction. For PA residents, we can indulge in Shocktoberfest, an annual fall event located in Reading that’s full of attractions from haunted houses to haunted hayrides. Nothing screams spooky season than getting your adrenaline rushing.
- Scary movies
Watching scary movies is a simple way of celebrating spooky season. You can do this alone or invite friends over to comfort you during jump scares or the paranoia you may experience once you call it a night. You can also go to your movie theater to watch Halloween Ends, the newest installment to the Halloween saga.
- Make Spooky Cocktails
If you’re 21+ make some spooky cocktails to enjoy while you have a scary movie marathon. Below are three cocktails perfect for a weekend:
From going out to staying indoors, there are many things you can do to celebrate this spooky season.
