Classic Halloween Activities
Enclave Trivia Night/Happy Hour
Enclave at Box Hill
You don’t have to go far to have a great time during the week of Halloween this year! Our onsite resident Trivia Night/Happy Hour is happening in our Pub Room on Wednesday, October 28th from 7pm -8pm. Test your trivia knowledge amongst friends and neighbors, and enjoy beer, wine, and snacks. (Feel free to bring your own favorite snacks and drinks to share!)
10 minute drive
On Saturday, October 31, don your costumes and head to Bel Air’s 27th Annual Halloween event! There’s a contest for best kids costume (a little Maleficent won last year), and plenty of candy and fun for all. Enjoy a night out with the neighborhood!
Pumpkin Picking—Applewood Farm
35 minute drive
Pumpkin picking is one of those traditions that will always live on (thank goodness). Head out to Applewood Farm in Whiteford, MD to pick out your very own pumpkins for carving, cooking, and decorating! Oh, and by the way—hayrides, lawn bowling, the corn maze, model trains, and even a reindeer antler toss are included in the $4 admission.
Legends of the Fog—Haunted House
20 minute drive
Legends of the Fog includes the Sinister Circus, Haunted Hayride, a Cornstalkers maze, and Carsins Manor haunted house. The scare factor here is through the roof. If you’re a thrill seeker, you should definitely make plans to be at Legends of the Fog this year!
Adventurous Halloween Activities
10 minute drive
If you’re a fan of adventures and consider Indiana Jones to be the best film explorer, you’ll love the Hunt for Halloween at the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center. Join friends or family on a quest to find signs of Halloween using an app on your phone! If you’re able to log each item or puzzle you solve, you can win a Halloween prize!
14 minute drive
This year’s theme is all about pig races! Learn about the importance of pigs in agriculture and learn new things as you race to reach the end of the maze. Never has learning been quite so fun. Tickets are only $6, but if you can gather a group of 20 or more, you can get a discount.
Active Halloween Activities
10 minute drive
If you’re a fan of kayaking adventures, get yourself to Anita C. Leight Estuary Center for their last kayaking trip out on the marshes! From 9am-11;30am on October 31, soak up the beauty of fall and the lively creatures enjoying fall weather. Tickets are $12 per person. Secure your spot ASAP.
19 minute drive
This annual 5K run/walk was started in memory of Heather L. Hurd, who was killed by a texting distracted driver in 2008. Its purpose is twofold: to raise funds for the Remembrance Book Scholarship Fund and to raise awareness of traffic accident prevention. After the 5K run, you and your kids will enjoy face painting, crafts, and more! It all starts at 9am on October 31 (get a head start on those candy calories!).
