Fun and Frightening Fall Events

Well, here we are, just a few short weeks from Halloween. I think we all can agree that with Covid, cancelled events, social distancing, and mask wearing that Halloween will look and feel quite different this year. But, the good news is that there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the season safely and feel a bit of normalcy. Below we’ve chosen some of our favorite events in and around the neighborhood (and beyond). It’s worth noting that all are following Covid safety guidelines, but you may want to check their websites for specific details. Also, you’ll want to grab your tickets online and in advance in most cases. Hope you enjoy!
