Family-Friendly Halloween

Explore the Laurel Highlands and enjoy Halloween fun for everyone - without all the creepy stuff!

Plan a weekend full of fun for the entire family and visit the Laurel Highlands for Halloween activities that are more thrilling than chilling. Admire the colorful fall foliage and enjoy the not-so-scary Halloween activities, from pumpkin-picking to feeding zoo animals.



Dress the kids in their costumes and head to Idlewild and SoakZone to see all their favorite rides decorated for Halloween, enjoy spook-tacular entertainment and follow the trick-or-treat trail through Storybook Forest to receive goodies from their favorite characters!
