No fear, the Centre Region will play host to a variety of Halloween-themed events starting this weekend. Whether it’s a haunted attraction or a tour of a cave bedecked in orange and black, there are plenty of events for adults and children to choose from.
For the most part, Halloween is for children, and the variety of events catering to young people dominate the schedule. In addition to Centre Region Parks and Recreation’s annual Halloween Costume Parade, kids might find amusement with not-so-scary tours through Penn’s Cave and Lincoln Caverns or can cut a rug with child-centric carnivals or safety-first trick-or-treating nights.
Adults without small children can wait until dark to attend one of the region’s haunted attractions, such as a haunted house at Murarik Motorsports’ haunted house, Spookhaven in Lock Haven or Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology’s Towers of Terror.
