Where to Have a Great Time in Georgia This Halloween

traffic safety

Some people hate fun and like to spend Halloween hiding in a house with a darkened porch, doing their best to avoid children asking for candy, or, worse yet, handing out carrots, and turnips, and apples, and saying things like, "if you eat too much candy your teeth will fall out." For everyone else, keep reading to discover some of the best Halloween events in Georgia this year.

The Little 5 Points Halloween Festival and Parade

What's better than enjoying a parade and seeing some of the fantastic costumes of Atlanta? Doing it with amazing food, beverages, and entertainment all around you, that's what. Check out the local vendors, take in the Little 5 Points Halloween Parade, and enjoy one of the top Halloween events in the United States.

 Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Georgia

Scarier even than the little dancing guy that used to appear in Six Flags commercials, 6 Flags Over Georgia Fright Fest is a great way to get your fear on in one of the best theme parks in the South. With a range of haunted houses and scare zones in play, it's a great choice for the whole family, and especially for the cocky ones who always say, "I don't scare easily." 

A Nightmare On Congress Street Pub Crawl in Savannah

When it comes to enjoying a few drinks and walking the streets, Savannah is one of the best destinations on Earth. During their “A Nightmare On Congress Street VIII” bar crawl, enjoy drink specials and take part in a costume contest with a $2,000 prize. The real contest, however, is making sure you aren't crawling by the end of the crawl.

The Run Like Hell 5K in Atlanta

While most of us will spend Halloween gorging ourselves on candy and alcohol, a few brave souls will take part in the largest cemetery run in the nation. Dress in your favorite running-appropriate Halloween garb and enjoy Atlanta’s Run Like Hell 5k healthy alternative to the usual festivities. A note of warning: if you see skeletal hands bursting out of the ground and/or hear zombie-like groaning, run faster.
