For some of us, we wait for the Halloween season with the same anticipation as a child does for Christmas. What’s not to love about spooky season? Crisp nights, scary stories, candy treats, costumes, and fun with friends – it’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Here in the Ticonderoga area, we take the 10 days leading up to Halloween and jam-pack them with fun for the whole family. Check out our HalloweenFest schedule! You’re sure to find something for every ghost and ghoul in your family!
