It’s the last weekend before Halloween! To help you make the best of the last October weekend we’ve compiled a list of things to do to get in the spirit for Monday’s Halloween.

1. Pumpkin patch/Corn maze

Though it may seem like pumpkin patches are for little kids and corn mazes for the older kids, they can both be fun for any age. You need those pumpkins to make those jack-o’-lanterns for Halloween night. Who doesn’t love the challenge of trying to find their way out of a corn maze? Some places even offer flashlight corn mazes for after dark if you want to get scared. Some local pumpkin patches are the Jones Family Farm Market in Edgewood, Maryland and the Maryland Corn Maze in Gambrills, MD.

2. Haunted House or Hayride

If you want to get scared and really in the spooky spirit for Halloween try a Haunted House or Haunted Hayride. Eastpoint Mall has the Bennett’s Curse Haunted House or if you love some Poe with your Halloween try out the Nevermore Haunted House in Baltimore. It’s thought to be the “most realistic and scariest haunted house” in the area.

Though it’s a little bit of hike from here Ms. Glenn recommends the Bedlam in the Boro if you’re looking for a kid friendly haunted hayride. It’s up on the stateline in Lineboro, Maryland and the cost goes towards supporting the local fire department.


3. Watch Halloween movies

Its spooky season and there’s nothing better than sitting down with a bucket of butter popcorn and watching a spooky movie. If you want something scary or gruesome but is definitely a nail biter check out Ring. If you want something Halloween like but not scary check out Child’s Play. If you want something with a twist check out Stephen King’s The Shining. Then there’s always the Saw series that makes for an epic Halloween marathon.


4. Trunk or Treating

With Halloween being on a Monday and a school night, many are looking for trunk or treats to take their costumed children to this weekend. Both Dundalk and Edgemere are hosting Truck or Treat events tonight, October 28.


Whether it’s getting in the spirit with pumpkin patches and carving and some trunk or treating or getting spooked out this Halloween weekend with haunted houses and scary movies, we hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween weekend.
