Halloween in Buffalo, Erie, Niagara
No one does Halloween like western New York!
When our area puts its mind to it (so to speak), nowhere else can top the wonderfully inventive activities for kids. In almost no season is this more apparent than during Halloween. There are literally dozens of activities to choose from every weekend starting in late September and ending in late October. Our ideas include places to Trick or Treat inside and outside in safe, public places, Halloween parties and celebrations, haunted tours and hayrides as well as a couple of Trunk or Treat events where kids can trick or treat out of the trunks of decorated vehicles! We also know that some families prefer to entertain their children on October 31st without including Halloween, so our Big List also includes a few Halloween Alternative celebrations going on in the Buffalo area as well.
If we've missed an event, please send me an email so that we can add it to our list!
FUN HALLOWEEN ATTRACTIONS
Fun attractions are appropriate for all ages, except where noted -- some fun attractions may also have scary components.
SCARY HALLOWEEN ATTRACTIONS
Scary attractions tend to be more appropriate for older elementary age kids who like to be scared, and teens.
The Great Pumpkin Farm
The Great Pumpkin Farm’s Fall Festival is all about wholesome fun, great food and enjoying everything the season has to offer. It’s where families come to get their pumpkins, mums and cornstalks, to enjoy the thrill of the rides, attractions and shows and where you can enjoy a delicious warm donut with a glass of fresh cider. It’s a great place to take photos of the little ones or find that special Halloween decoration in our Pumpkin Palace. Simply put, the Great Pumpkin Farm’s Fall Festival is a great way to celebrate fall, celebrate family and celebrate FUN.
