An insight into all things Fall and Halloween to do in Baltimore!

Call me basic but Halloween season and fall, in general, has to be one of my favorite times of year. I love when the temperature drops so I can pull my boots and sweaters out, I love the changing colors of the leaves, and I love planning my Halloween costumes…months in advance. For me, #SpookySzn doesn’t just stop at Halloween. I’m treating this like my birthday and spending the whole month of October celebrating all things fall and witchy.

If you want a break from laying on your couch binge-watching Freeform’s 31 Nights of Halloween, head on over to the Halloween Movie Nights at Diamondback Brewing Company (Oct 12, 19, 25, 31). Because what’s better than snacks, socializing, and Hocus Pocus?

Looking to keep your healthy habits during the holiday season? On Oct 21st from 5-6:30PM, the Rotunda will be having “Health-o-ween” filled with delicious samples from Pure Raw Juice, goodie bags with healthy treats, and nutrition, mental health, and fitness activities.

We might be in college but you’re never too old to carve a pumpkin. But, let’s be honest, it’s a pain in the butt to carve it on your own. New Secrets Tea is hosting a Pumpkin Carving Party on October 26th at 5PM. Carving pumpkins with old and new friends? Sounds like my type of party!

Speaking of pumpkins, Fall isn’t complete without a trip to a farm with wagon rides, pumpkin picking, apple cider donuts and at Weber’s Cider Mill Farm in Parkville, Maryland you can have it all. Pick your own apples, drink fresh pressed cider, and hop on a hayride around the farm. Time to get out your riding boots, flannels, and vests–it’s farm season!

Remember, it still is Free Fall Baltimore and on October 30 from 4-7PM, the American Visionary Art Museum is having a Free Fall Halloween Celebration which is a great way to get in the Halloween spirit while crossing “go to the AVAM” off your Baltimore Bucket List.

Want to get your thrill on? MICA puts on a Haunted House every year that’ll definitely scare the socks off your feet. This year’s theme is all about the monsters and demons lurking within our dreams. The weekend of October 22-24, visit MICA’s Haunted House “Fever Dream"….if you dare.

Then there’s actual Halloween. Being in college, you probably already have plans, but if you’re free and over 21, the Horseshoe Casino is putting on a Halloween Silent Disco which, in my opinion, seems like a blast.

There are options for everyone to get spooky this October in Baltimore. Have you started thinking about what you’re going to dress up as? Here are a few costume ideas with an ode to the greatest city on Earth (yes, that’s a fact)
