With Halloween fast approaching, we at GreatNest thought it might be fun to explore the myriad of Halloween events offered across the Triad - from pumpkin patches and haunted attractions to pumpkin wine tastings. So, we did a little searching and asking for ideas, and the list below is a summary of what we found. If you know of haunted tours, trick-or-treat locations, or any other spooky activities we didn't include, comment on this post. We want to know what you know!

Be sure to check on the events' websites for details about times and dates - and please beware that some require appointments, advance registration, or tickets. We've heard of all kinds of great places to get pumpkins, ride hayrides, create fall crafts, and just enjoy the Halloween fun. Help us add to the list!
