Halloween New England's Top Picks for October 16th - 22nd, 2014

October is always fast and furious for Halloween lovers and haunted attraction fans like us. It is shocking to realize we are at the midway point of the month already! That leaves 2-3 precious weeks to get in all you can until the fun goes dormant until next year (though New Englanders have Salem to thank for keeping the torch going year-round).

Halloween New England is your best resource for all the events and attractions across New England - we here to help you get the most out of the season. Remember to visit Halloween New England's Guide to Haunted Attractions, Trails, Mazes, and Hayrides open on Sundays and Weeknights! We've done the research so you don't have to. Now you can maximize every night as we round into the home stretch.

Top Event Picks for the Upcoming Week:

If you live in Maine or will be headed there this Saturday you'll want to carve out some time for Ghostport which is definitely worth your time and three pumpkin festivals are going on in New Hampshire this weekend - check out the Hudson NH PumpkinFest, the Goffstown Pumpkin Weigh-off and Regatta, Keene PumpkinFest.

It's Rock and Shock weekend in Worcester, MA and Saturday brings you the Adult Costume & CosPlay Contest at King Richard's Renaissance Faire (rain date Sunday) and the kids will love HallowLantern Hayrides at C.N. Smith Farm in East Bridgewater, MA.

The Webb-Deane Museum in CT is bringing in an archeologist to present "When Suspicion Meets Science: Examining the Belief in Vampires" this Thursday the 16th, and on Friday and Saturday they'll be hosting "Up Close and Creepy: Wethersfield Witch Trials, Ancient Burying Grounds & a 19th-Century Wake" .

Where has Halloween New England been lately?
Halloween New England had an incredible holiday weekend at Haunted Hill (RI), Haunted Acres (NH), Hysteria at Connors Farm (MA), Nightmare New England (NH), and Beelzebub's CarnEvil (MA). A huge thank you to all of those haunts and mazes for a memorable weekend!

Where are we headed this weekend?
With no shortage of attractions to visit, we're finding it tricky to pare down our ambitious plans. We're eyeing The Haunting of Barrett Park in Leominster, MA, Fear Town in Seekonk, MA, DementedFX in Easthampton, The Monster Mash Scream Park in South Hadley, MA, and Screeemfest at Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH. Stay tuned to see where we end up!
