This October: Bone-Chilling Fun in Anaheim!

There’s a chill in the air and fun on the calendar. From bone-chilling scares to charming community celebrations, there’s so much to see and do this month in Anaheim!

Theme Parks

A spell has been cast over the Disneyland Resort where Halloween Time fun is in full effect. Expect themed food options, magical decor and costumed characters. Don’t miss “Radiator Screams,” the Cars Land area of Disney California Adventure which is ready for Haul-O-Ween.

See you in the fog at Knott’s Scary Farm. The evening haunt offers nine bone-chilling mazes and themed live shows. With every inch of the park transformed, there’s nowhere to hide from the horror. If you’re looking for something family-friendly, check out the daytime Spooky Farm offered weekends and Halloween day. Families will trick or treat, complete crafts and enjoy the charming pumpkin displays.


Considering the city’s German roots, Anaheim cannot let an Oktoberfest go by uncelebrated. Enjoy polkas and prosts at the family-friendly Phoenix Club in Anaheim Fridays through Sundays all month long. Drink & dance like a local (or should I say lokal) at House of Blues' Lokal Brews, Lokal Grooves event October 6th. Dozens of local breweries will be tapping kegs while live music takes over multiple stages. Tickets are now available for the 21+ event.

Howl-O-Ween at Great Wolf Lodge

Make a splash on Halloween fun at Great Wolf Lodge. The water park offers resort guests complimentary costume parades, trick or treating, dance parties, and more. You’ll have a howling good time listening to story time and playing games in the resort lobby.

Anaheim Fall Festival and Halloween Parade

Since 1924, Anaheim has hosted a beloved Halloween Parade featuring creative floats, cars and community groups. Combining nostalgia and community pride, the parade has seen a resurgence in recent years. Enjoy the parade rolling down Broadway on October 27. Several events are planned to support the parade, including Retro Disneyland Slide Show presented by Charles Phoenix.

The parade is part of a larger Fall Festival. Starting at 11 AM on Saturday, families will enjoy crafts, games and pumpkin patch on Center Street Promenade. Don’t forget Fido who may want to participate in the Howl-O-Ween Pooch Pawrade!
