What To Do This Weekend: Halloween Edition

Where do we begin? So many opportunities abound this weekend to take your little ghouls and goblins out for creepy and not-so-creepy fun. Enjoy!

Here's a roundup of some Hallow-tastic events you may not want to miss:

  • Set sail on the Boo Cruise on the Belle of Louisville, a not-so-scary cruise for the children to dress up in costume and have boatloads of fun. A DJ onboard will play games with the kids and keep them engaged.

  • Come to Boo Dell at Yew Dell and enjoy trick-or-treating along the Trail-o-Treats, creatively creepy booths and costumes, hayrides, a straw maze, scavenger hunts, and a visit from Mr. Magic. (This event draws a large crowd, so come early.)

  • Add a little science into your Halloween festivities by attending Trick or Treatment, hosted by Louisville Water and located at the Crescent Hill Water Treatment Plant and the Gatehouse at the Crescent Hill Reservoir. The free event includes a plant tour, prizes, science experiments, games, and more.

  • Take in some eye-catching Halloween fun at the Gheens Science Hall & Rauch Planetarium's annual Fright Light Party, where there will be Halloween games and treats for kids as well as the chance to see the much-loved Fright Light Laser Music Show.

  • See more than 1,500 carved pumpkins lighting the night at the one-night-only Jack O’Lantern Stroll at Louisville Slugger Field. The Stroll also offers trick-or-treating in the safety of the Field, games, crafts, Louisville’s largest pumpkin pie by Heitzman’s Traditional Bakery, and more.

  • As an alternative to the traditional trick-or treating, take your family to PumpkinFest and Family Movie Night in Jeffersontown. Children can dress in costume and trick-or-treat along Historic Gaslight Square, enjoy activities at the pavilion, and eat hot dogs, chips, and soft drinks. "Hotel Transylvania 2" will be the featured movie.

  • Don't forget to stop by Hillcrest Avenue (at Brownsboro Road) for Halloween on Hillcrest Avenue, a series of decked-out homes that draw an estimated 75,000+ visitors during the month of October. Park your car, walk the sidewalk, and enjoy the creepy vibes.

  • Make your family's Halloween informative and fun with a visit to Boo-nanza at the Kentucky Science Center. Younger children are encouraged to wear costumes while their older siblings solve a “Clue-like” mystery that takes them throughout the Science Center.

  • Churchill Downs and its community partners present Trick-or-Treat at the Track, a family-friendly event at which children 11 and under are encouraged to dress in costume and visit community-hosted booths located throughout the first floor of the racetrack to receive candy.

Have a spooktacular weekend!
