Think that Halloween is just for kids? Think again! Whether you enjoy the rush of a haunted house or prefer a good costume party, here are five fun activities for adults to partake in this Halloween season.

Scary

The Haunted Graveyard at Lake Compounce

Enjoy this 45-minute walk-through attraction on weekends starting October 4 until October 27. There are tons of scary locations throughout the park including (but not limited to) catacombs, bat caves, a cemetery and a host of other terrifying attractions. A portion of the ticket proceeds will go towards benefitting Diabetes Research, so you can have a good time while supporting a great cause. It’s a little out of the way, but the fright is definitely worth the drive!

Less Scary

A Haunting at Mill Hill

Listen to scary stories while taking a lantern lit tour through the historic Mill Hill Graveyard in Norwalk. The tours are at 6:00pm, 7:30pm and 9:00pm, and you may even see (or hear) a few spirits creeping about during the tour. There will even be refreshments at the conclusion of the tour from the conveniently named “Deadly Grounds Coffee”.

Legends & Hauntings at the Fairfield Museum

Take a haunting walking tour and listen to stories about “body snatching”, “ghost legends” during nightfall. You will even venture to the site where townsfolk conducted tests on alleged witches during the 17th century.

The Bear and Grill Halloween Costume Party
