Spooky season is upon us once again! Here’s a look at some of the Halloween events that are taking place on Long Island in October.
The RVC Spooky Fest will take place at 1 Tanglewood Rd. in Rockville Centre every weekend in October. The spooky festival will have a lot of activities, mostly for young children. There will be a not-so-scary walk (for young children) and a scary walk (for older kids and adults). The spooky fest also has do-it-yourself crafts that kids can take home with them. The Spooky Fest is always looking for volunteers to help out, so contact them i you’re interested.
There is also a Costume Beach Clean Up on October 28th at 300 W. Broadway in Long Beach. The event begins at 2:00 and ends at 3:30. Families can come to the beach dressed up in their favorite Halloween costumes as they help to clean the beach. Supplies such as garbage bags, hand sanitizer, garbage pickers and nets will be provided.
There is also a scary haunted house in Bayville. The website recommends that no one under the age of ten enter the haunted house. Children under the age of twelve must be accompanied by an adult. The website has good reviews of the haunted house. Someone that went there in 2019 said that it was “one of the best haunted houses anywhere”. The Bayville haunted house will be open the rest of October and closes on November 5th. You should check it out!
Another event that is happening this October is called May’s Farm Pumpkin and Hayrides in Wading River. This event won’t be scary at all – you can spend time here with family and young children. Sometimes Elmo will even stop by (mostly on the weekends) and they have a wide selection of food and drinks you can choose from. May’s farm will be open from 9 to 6 Monday through Saturday and 9 to 5 on Sundays. You should definitely stop by if you have the chance.
