Vendors are in on the fun too, there will be booth decorations and children are welcome to enjoy candy and treats for a fun Halloween afternoon. Put on your mask and get in the spooky spirit!


Lowcountry Haunted House

If you’re brave enough for a true Halloween adventure, hop in the car for a trip out to Walterboro, SC, and experience The Reaper’s Dungeon haunted house! For the ultimate scary Halloween event, it is certainly worth the one hour drive. Pack spooky snacks and turn up the Halloween-inspired playlist for a little road trip fun.

  • General Admission is $8

  • Fridays and Saturdays starting October 9th

  • Check the Facebook page for special nights celebrating military members, first responders, educators, and more


Lowcountry Pumpkin Patches 

Plan to spend a weekend fall day searching for the perfect pumpkins at a local pumpkin patch? This family tradition is not to be missed, even during COVID-19. We like Holiday Farms in Jasper County, South Carolina for a patch with photo opportunities for kids and adults. Make the pumpkin patch visit a complete Halloween affair and wear costumes! Turn up the fun and plan a coordinating family costume just for the pumpkin patch. 

If you’re looking to make an afternoon out of some Halloween fun, but want to keep safety a priority, consider a drive through pumpkin patch! Drive out to Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch for a new take on a safe Halloween activity. Simply jump in the car with your family and drive through the patch for truly social distant pumpkin patch-ing!

  • When: Friday, Saturday, and Sundays in October 

  • Cost is $10.00 per vehicle

  • Where: 2434 N. Hwy. 17 Mt. Pleasant, S.C. 29464

  • Be sure to check out the Willie McRae Corn Maze

Another outdoor activity we love during the fall season is a “you pick” farm. Harvest your own vegetables at Dempsey Farms in Saint Helena Island, SC. Connecting with nature and eating the fruits of your labor with family and friends is relaxing and fun. Try something new, or a tried and true favorite of the season while you social distance in the great outdoors.
