How is the Capital Region celebrating Halloween? Get the low-down.
Halloween 2016 -- where to go and what to do:
If you're looking for something to get you pumped for Halloween, look no further. We've got the two words that are sure to get you hooked in: "wine" and "celebration." Stop by the Washington Avenue Armory Oct. 28 for some wine sampling, delicious food, live entertainment, and more.
This is sure to be a unique, spook-tastic experience. The Collar City Players are making a special stop in Albany to perform a creepy reading of Shakespeare's "Macbeth." And, there will be Nine Pin. In fact, it's taking place at Nine Pin's taproom in Albany.
This is by far the coolest. How would you like to take part in a haunted mansion tour/downtown Albany pub crawl? This year, you can. Add the Albany County Historical Association-Ten Broeck Mansion to your GPS and get there from Oct. 25-27.
The Capitol is totally haunted. We want to get spooked there! If you dare go to the Capitol this fall, you might even have yourself a run-in with notable spirits who linger there, like an artist or a janitor. Are you up for it?
What's creepier than a dark, damp, dreary cave? Nothin'- that's why Howe Caverns is on our fall bucket list. Around Halloween, Howe Caverns gives haunted candlelight tours of the grounds. The tour guides may even be in old-time-y garb to really set the mood. This sounds super fun and definitely spooky!
If you're a single adult who loves your pet enough to enter them into a Halloween costume contest, don't be ashamed. There are many of us. You can dress up your pet or dress up with your pet. Either way, there are plenty of prizes to be awarded.
The Stockade is arguably the most haunted place in the Capital Region, which makes it the perfect location for a haunted tour. Some of the buildings there date back to the 1700s! Anything that's been around that long has to be haunted, right? The Stockade is so rich with history- it's bound to be a staple on your fall bucket list!
If you've never been to Liberty Ridge to get your spook on, this is the year to go. It's super fun, and just scary enough. There are tractor rides, animals, food & drinks, and plenty of haunted things- from corn fields, to forts, to woods and houses. There's also a warm fire pit, a sandbox filled with corn (sounds weird but don't knock it 'til you sit in it), and a fun slide!
