Huntsville AL Halloween 2011

Here’s a sampling of Halloween things to do in and around Huntsville AL.

Scarecrow Trail at Botanical Garden

The annual Scarecrow Trail at Huntsville Botanical Garden includes over 100 creative, unusual and downright ingenius scarecrows. I’ve seen the scarecrows every year, but 2010 is the best one yet.  The Theme was “Scarecrow Trail Goes Hollywood.”

Tate Farms: Lots of Pumpkins & Lots of Fun

It doesn’t take long to live in North Alabama and find out where the best pumpkin patch is. It’s Tate Farms Cotton Pickin’ Pumpkins in Meredianville. So pack up the kids and spend an adventuresome and family-friendly day at one of the happinest places around Huntsville in the fall. Pick your own pumpkin off the vine, pet the animals and try out the hay maize. You can also get lunch at Tate Farms if you stay a long time and need something to eat. For more info, call (256) 828-8288.

Field of Screams & Cornmaze

Cornfield Mazes are the rage all across America. The Brownsboro Cornfield Maize is the biggest one near Huntsville with over 14 acres and many special activities and events for the whole family. The MaIze is located east of Huntsville on US HWY 72. Turn North onto Brownsboro Road, they are behind the Post Office.

Haunted Graystone Manor–Now “Ars Mortis” (Killen)

Graystone Manor is over 30,000 sqft of ultimate terror, with twists, turns and all manor of horrors the Doctor’s evil mind could conjure. And because the Doctor loves his bodies warm and fresh we have an indoor holding and ticketing area. Plus you can grab your last meal at Dead Debbie’s Diner while you wait, no need to die on an empty stomach. New for 2009: While at Graystone Manor be sure to go through Dr. Vanburan’s Asylum where the insane’s nightmares come to life.

Family Fright Night at Lowery House

This event was created especially for families. You won’t find all the blood and gore here, just a few thrills and chills. Huntsville has its share of adult and teen events, but kids love Halloween more than anyone which led Lowry House to develop a “haunted house” type event for the younger crowd.
