Halloween Family Fun in Reno Tahoe
Halloween is right around the corner! Lucky for you there are all sorts of ways to get into the spooky Halloween spirit with your family this season in the #RenoTahoe area.
Little goblins, witches and ghosts are all welcome to join local zoos and museums for yummy treats and tons of fun throughout the month of October. Start getting into the Halloween spirit by heading to Animal Ark for the Harvest Festival October 15, 2016 to watch the enjoyment of their adorable creatures who will receive pumpkins filled with their favorite treats. On October 19, 2016 head over to The Discovery Museum for their 6th annual Halloween Trick-or-treat event for a spooky good time. Purchase your tickets today! Family and friends can also join the National Automobile Museum on October 31, 2016 for some trick-or-treat action, candy stations and fun games!
The Reno Riverwalk District will be hosting some wicked fun at their Halloween Hallow event for all unearthly dressed youngsters. Kids will be provided with a “treasure map” to guide them to sweet treats and they will most likely be running into a few monsters along the way. Live music, entertainment and a special Virginia Street Bridge Pumpkin Carving Contest will all be taking place as well for all ages to enjoy. For more information visit http://www.renoriver.org.
Family and friends can also visit local pumpkin patches for some old-style fun! Toll House Pumpkins welcomes The Fall Harvest Festival for the whole month of October with tons of kid-friendly attractions: a haunted maze, climbing wall, pony rides, pumpkin bouncer and more! For pumpkin-full fun in Carson City, visit Corely Ranch – also all month long – an organically raised and produced farm open for people to come and enjoy. On October 23, 2016 Victorian Square in Sparks will be hosting PumpkinPalooza. You and your favorite little monster(s) can experience the famous Pumpkin Derby, Pumpkin Pie Eating Contest, Family Costume Parade or enter your carved pumpkin into the Pumpkin Beauty Pageant. Also, home to many haunted attractions this season, the Andelin Family Farm has a kid-friendly corn maze for all to wander through. This USA themed corn maze is a fun activity during the day or night. Hours and dates do vary so make sure to checkout The Andelin Family Farm website for more details.
Virginia City is no stranger to nightmarish occurrences and spooky events. To enjoy a family fun day, dress to scare and visit Virginia City for the Goblin Parade on Halloween day. The little ones can also trick-or-treat on the Comstock starting with a costume contest and after dark the Silver Terrace Cemetery will open, for one night only, so all can walk through the graves on the scariest night of the year. #RenoTahoe can’t wait to see you and your pump-kids!
