Family Halloween Activities

GREAT FAMILY ACTIVITIES FOR 2016 HALLOWEEN!

nv-p-patch-5-700x393Quick – what’s the first holiday you think of in October? In Las Vegas, that might be a toss-up – since Nevada Day (a holiday for many of us!) falls on October 31. But let’s be honest – no matter your age, denomination, or any other category of personhood you belong to, Halloween is going to be the one that tumbles off your lips. (Okay – maybe Oktoberfest comes in a close second.)

So – how do you celebrate the ‘scariest’ holiday of the year? We figure there are two ways to look at it: Charly-Brown’s-Great-Pumpkin style, or Scare-Your-Wits-Out Frightening. To hit both needs, we thought we’d include some listings of great Pumpkin Patches to be found in the valley – as well as Haunted Houses (for those of you more adventurous in the area of macabre).

Whichever your preference, we hope you enjoy this holiday to the fullest – because Las Vegas is at its greatest weather at just this time of year!
