Halloween Events in Greater Morgantown

We have all of your Halloween Events and Activities this October

Whether you’ve decorated your house with seasonal decor, you’re getting ready to carve pumpkins, or you’ve been planning your costume since last year, Halloween is a fun holiday the entire family can get involved in…even your pets!

You don’t have to go bobbing for apples to make plans this year (unless you want to of course!) Grab your friends, the kids and the rest of the family, and get ready to “out-scare” the rest!

Events are subject to change. Check with the event for more information.
