One thing that I truly love about Utah is the Halloween Spirit that so many people get into! Even my daughter was begging me on September 30th to pull out ALL of our Fall and Halloween decorations! It’s a tradition that many families have, and I love to share it with mine.
But do you realize HOW MUCH there is to do around this time of year? There are endless family activities (and a lot are free) There are a ton of places to go that are family friendly, and some places that you might want to leave the little tots with a sitter, and make it a fun adult night!
We’ve included many places that you can check out this month! Don’t forget your camera… You will want to capture these moments!
You will want to make sure to stop by Thanksgiving Point for all the activities held in this area! After the Corn Maze, you’ll still have so much to do! Including Pumpkin Princess Playland, Apple Blasters, Hayrides, Zipline, Facepainting, Pumpkin Tetherball, Spooktacular Jack-O-Latern Tree and so much more!
Held at Thanksgiving Point – 3003 North Thanksgiving Way, Lehi, UT 84043
