Places to Stay
Plan a weekend full of fun for the entire family and visit the Laurel Highlands for Halloween activities that are more thrilling than chilling. Take in the colorful fall foliage and enjoy the not-so-scary Halloween activities, from pumpkin-picking to feeding zoo animals.
Summer isn't the only time to visit Idlewild. Go check out the whole park decorated for Halloween! Dress up the kids in their favorite costumes to trick-or-treat in Story Book Forest. With special-themed rides, Halloween entertainment and live musical acts, HallowBOO! is a treat for the whole family.
Wander along torch-lit paths, get the chance to see more than 50 active nocturnal animals and hear the vocal calls of the animals at Living Treasures Wild Animal Park's Night at the Zoo. Children who bring their jack-o-lanterns (carved or decorated) for the weekly contest get in free with the purchase of an adult ticket. (Please no scary costumes!)
Visit Schramm's Farms & Orchards Fall Fest for everything you'd ever want in an autumn afternoon. You can take a hayride, ride a pony, explore the giant maze, pick pumpkins, enjoy fall refreshments like caramel apples and apple cider slush and even shop for a bottle of Arrowhead wine and fall decorations to take home after a long day of fall activities.
Don't miss Autumnfest at Seven Springs, four weekends of autumnal fun for everyone. The chairlift ride provides the perfect opportunity for an amazing scenic fall foliage view. Kids of all ages will have a blast on the Alpine Slide and the older kids can go on a zip line adventure. From tasty food to live entertainment, Autumnfest is guaranteed to be a fun time for kids and parents.
Navigate your way through the 5-acre corn maze for the perfect alternative to scary Halloween activities. If you're feeling brave, you can find your way through the maze after dusk on Flashlight Nites. From corn hole to the hay maze, there's enough fall fun for everyone at Faranda Farm's Harvest Festival. Dress warm and bring your flashlight!
We guarantee that you will find the perfect pumpkin for everyone at Kerber's Pumpkin Days. Be sure to treat yourself to seasonal ice cream flavors or one of Kerber's famous pepperoni rolls. The kiddos will love the rainbow playground and the tube slides. Don't miss the hayrides on Saturdays and Sundays!
