It’s finally October, and that means “spooky season” is here. Haunted houses, pumpkin patches, and fall festivals are swiftly approaching. Taylor Pashal said, “I personally like Halloween because of the social aspect of hanging out with friends and doing fun exciting things with people you love.” So what’s happening? Here are four Halloween activities for Badgers to enjoy this fall season.

To start off, we have Ephriam’s own Nightmare on Main Street. Put on by Granary Arts and Ephriam city, this night full is happening on October 28, from 6-8PM. There will be an artistic graveyard on the lawn and trick-or-treating down main street. Their flyer says there will be games, activities, vendors, a spooky ally, and much more.

If students are looking for something a little more on the thrill side this Halloween, and are willing to take a short drive, Haunted Halloween Haven is the place. Located in Spanish Fork, about an hour away, they offer FREE walk-through haunts every night in October. Family-friendly, but still spooky, it’s fun for everyone. They open nightly at 7:30PM and the activities are entirely outdoors.

Beck Family Farms has all the Halloween activities one might ask for. Located in Centerfield, It has a Farmers Market, kids straw maze, Pumpkin Patch, and 18-hole mini golf. They claim to have the biggest pumpkin variety in the state of Utah, so If Badgers are looking to go pick a pumpkin, this might just be the place.

In the neighboring city of Manti, there is going to be a Halloween festival. This event will be held on October 29 from 5:30 to 8PM. Their website mentions, “Lord of the ring riders, Pumpkin patch, and Pumpkin painting and carving.” The pumpkin carving is a competition and offers prizes of all kinds. There will be entertainment, Photo ops, Spookers Ally, games for kids, Halloween stores, and a trunk-or-treat. Rylei Voorhees, a Snow College student says, “You’re not going to want to miss this one.”
