The leaves are changing, providing the perfect scenery for Halloween activities all month long. Although it’s considered the spookiest of holidays, Halloween doesn’t have to be all fright. Your little ghosts and goblins will love some scare-free activities. Oakland County is full of Halloween family fun for all ages throughout the entire month of October.

Take a hayride to pick the perfect pumpkin, make your way through a corn maze or hang out with the animals at a petting farm. Make a few fall memories using our interactive map and our list of family-friendly Halloween/fall activities below.
