I write travel books and I am having lots of fun doing that. So far I published two: 'Your Guide to Visit Paris for Free' and 'Your Guide to Visit San Francisco for Free', both available on

Spooky festivals and attractions for kids in Pennsylvania

October is such a fun month! Festivals and events are happening every week-end all around the state culminating with a big Day on the last day of the month.

Make sure that the events you are going to are suitable for your children. Some children are more sensitive than others so it is not really a matter of age but rather how easily they can get scared.


100 Sesame Road
Langhorne, Pennsylvania

This will be a Spooktakular month at Sesame Place. Every week-end in October from 10 am to 6 pm, you will get to celebrate Halloween with the Count and his friends Cookie Monster, Zoe, Grover and of course Elmo!. You will get to enjoy the Count's un-haunted castle maze, Elmo's World live show, themed character dining, trick and treat throughout the park as well as hayrides. This is the place to be for toddlers!


300 Park Blvd.
Hershey, Pennsylvania

Enjoy spooky attractions as well as Halloween and fall decorations and activities all around the park. You definitely want to come and enjoy HersheyPark in the Dark with roller 'ghosters', Night Mares (carrousel) and the sooperBooperlopper (I want to go just for that!). Bring your flashlights to encounter more than 200 native North American animals.... Call 717 534 3900 for more information.


3700 Hamilton Boulevard
Allentown, Pennsylvania

Every October week-end, come to the park and enjoy some kid friendly non scary Halloween activities. They describe it as an haunted playground and that is exactly what it is. The Park offers Halloween Haunt but be warned that their halloween haunt is not recommended for children under the age of 13 after 6 pm.
