Top Picks November 2021

Halloween New England's fans know better than to think Halloween season ends October 31st, right?

There are still a number of very worthwhile events to enjoy during the first weeks of November - and the best part? Fewer crowds, more personal experience, and an extended Halloween season all lined up for you!

Most haunts wrapped up their season last weekend but you'll find a handful who will be open into November and they would love to draw you in for a final Halloween hurrah. It's your last, best chance to pack in extra thrills before your favorite season is over until next fall.

Before we close up the proverbial (blog) shop, let us express our deepest thanks to everyone who followed Halloween New England, read our blogs, visited our event picks, sent us updates and feedback about their Halloween adventures, and let others know about the resource that our site and community aims to be for Halloween fans everywhere. Additionally, the Halloween New England team expanded in 2021, and because of Gail, Lisa, Becky, and Ciara, we were able to attend more events first-hand, be in more places, and provide you with wider Halloween coverage. And one of most significant improvements to Halloween New England this year was the brand new website which would not have been possible without the enormous effort and commitment from our developer Justin at JR Computer Associates and Wendy from NH's own Wetherbee Creative. So much credit for this memorable season goes to the enthusiasm, insight, and passion of the wider HNE team who collectively worked to better serve Halloween fans in every pocket of New England.
May you all have a wonderful "off-season" and we look forward to reconnecting in 2022!
