Celebrate Halloween in Western PA and discover lots of fun ways to experience fall with the family.
For Halloween this year, plan a spooky getaway that’s more “thrilling” than “chilling.”
Families love to celebrate Halloween in Western PA because the Laurel Highlands has lots for hayrides, corn mazes and spooky attractions for kids of all ages. Huston’s Haunted Hollow in Somerset County offers frightening fun for everyone from the haunted farmhouse to hayride of horror to the evil woods walk. Faranda Farm Harvest Festival in Hollsopple features a 5-acre corn maze and hayrides. Screams in the night, shots in the distance, the whoops and cries of angry Native Americans and wounded British soldiers, a chilling look at the eighteenth century is given on the Haunted History Hayride and Candlelight Tour at Bushy Run Battlefield. Have a ghoulishly great time as historical reenactors frighten you with scenes from Pontiac's War.
