Family and friends get festive for Halloween around the lake, marking their calendars for October events that get everyone feeling spooky. Celebrate a Day of the Dead event at the ‘Hoot and Howl’ celebration at the Carolina Raptor Center. More ghoulish Halloween favorites are at Historic Latta Plantation. Make plans to participate in the All Hallows Eve Family Day, Ghost Walk Haunted Trail and Ghost Tales in the Dark. Bring the kids to Birkdale Village for the Trick or Treat Scavenger Hunt and to Rural Hill for a day of Halloween fun with magic, local crafts vendors, bounce houses and the annual costume contest. The Downtown Davidson Halloween March is just one more festive event!
