Happy Halloween! Today marks the official start to the end-of-year rush. With so many holidays packed into what remains of 2013, these last couple of months will be busy. Although pre-Halloween events have been taking place all around the District, the official day is upon us, and celebration is in order. This special holiday gives people of all ages the opportunity to be someone (or something) else for the day, so what are you waiting for?
Below are some suggestions for how to spend your Halloween weekend:
Fright at the Museum: Visit the Crime Museum while it is transformed into a hunting ground for the criminally insane. This tour will have you shaking with fear.
Gravensteen Haunted House: Known as the largest haunted attraction inside the beltway, this mansion offers 50,000 square feet of thrills and scares at every corner. Come prepared to scream!
Halloween Movie Watching: If you’d rather get in the spirit in front of your TV, no problem! There are tons of great holiday appropriate movies to enjoy. Check out ABC Family’s 13 Nights of Halloween.
Spooky Kitchen Creations: Although accumulating stockpiles of candy is appealing, it is also fun to craft up your own scary concoctions. Check out these delicious Halloween recipes!
Trick-or-Treating: Going the conventional route this evening is another great option. The weather is perfect for a night of costumes and pillow cases full of treats. (Maybe a few tricks as well.) There are a number of residential neighborhoods in the area as well as this costume bar crawl for the older crowd!
