I won’t even try to hide it: Halloween is my favorite holiday. By far. And to help Columbus be as spooky as it can this October, we’re compiling a list of some of our favorite Hallowen-related events and outings you can enjoy before the end of the month.
Explore a Haunted House
Columbus has no shortage of spooky spots you can check out. Thurber House plus Kelton House Museum & Garden are both operational museums, and are both alleged to be very haunted. Why wait for the ghosts to come to you?
Boo at the Zoo (And Aquarium)
Because taking young children to actual haunted houses is probably a stretch, the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium is providing its own lighthearted, family-friendly fun that’s still totally festive.
If EDM and Halloween are your things, this unique event—which takes places at the Ohio Expo Center on Oct. 28–is the place to be.
Ghosts on the Move
From Columbus City Adventures to Uptown Westerville, walking ghost tours—which let you get to know the boo! in your area up-close and personal—are available from a variety of groups. Columbus Ghost Tours even explores the infamous Green Lawn Cemetary,

(The Real-Life) Pet Cemetery
If you want to relive the Stephen King classic, there’s a totally unique—and totally strange—cemetery dedicated to pets that have passed on the City’s east side. Brown Pet Cemetary is located at 5031 Sawyer Rd.
On Saturdays in October, Ohio History Connection’s Ohio Village comes alive with Halloween fun. The event features everything from spooky stories, to pumpkin carving and a straw maze.
All Treats, No Tricks
Looking for wine, hors d’oeuvres and complimentary raffles? Dublin’s Dorner Plastic Surgery is holding its All Treats No Tricks open house on Oct. 27, from 4-8 p.m. Attendees even qualify for special pricing, in case you need a few to updates to your everyday mask.
