The culture on Cape Cod is probably one of the most unique in the entire country. A blend of amazing history and just about every type of person imaginable makes it a great place for anyone to visit. As it features such a vibrant community, the Cape really comes to life for holidays. This is definitely true for the nearest holiday Halloween, when you will find fun and excitement for everyone.
Endless Trick or Treating
There are a dozen towns to trick or treat in, so you could come back for trick or treating every year and never explore all the great neighborhoods. There are also plenty of trick or treating opportunities in public places. The Safe Trick or Treat events held in various Cape Cod towns offer kids the opportunity to trick or treat safely with plenty of events going on such as costume parades in Chatham and Brewster to trick or treating at local vendors along Main Street in Hyannis.
Endless Pumpkin Patches
Cape Cod is the best place in the world for the pumpkin patch enthusiasts out there! This is because each of the towns on the Cape features their very own pumpkin patch. If you are so inclined, you spend an entire day exploring unique pumpkin patch after pumpkin patch.
Art and Souls Costume Ball
This is the most horrifying and fun dance party on the entire Cape. Being here, you will feel as if you are spending a night at the museum, except the art has come to life! Great live music, endless dancing, refreshments, and good people make this a night to remember. The fun is kicking off on October 28th at 7:30 pm in the town of Falmouth.
The Cape has a rich history, and with that comes plenty of spooky ghost stories. There are several tours in the area that explore this history along with the tales of spirits of yore. Harwich is offering a Haunted Graveyard Tour on Saturday October 14th and Saturday October 21st presented by the historical society. You can also check out the Haunted History Tour in Barnstable along 6A with tours nightly through November 15th, or the Provincetown Ghost Tour on October 27th and 28th for their Halloween Tour. Both of these run throughout the summer season as well so if you miss them now, you haven’t totally missed your chance!
The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster comes to life every year with this classic Halloween celebration. This year the fun is happening from 10 am to 2 pm on October 28th. You can enjoy the entire museum along with new special features like mazes, crafts, games, tricks, treats, and so much more.
There is never a bad time to visit Cape Cod, but Halloween offers a Cape experience unlike any other. The streets are spooky, but the energy and the goodwill throughout the towns is amazing. This is the perfect place to celebrate your next Halloween.
