Halloween Utah Style
Utah's National Parks and State Parks will be open and very appealing during the Halloween holiday. Some will offer special activities.
Goblin Valley State Park is often included on lists of great places to celebrate Halloween, mostly for its name-sake hoodoos and other rock structures. Fall is a delightful time to visit the park because temperatures are pleasant – not too hot or too cold. The park is perfect under a bright moon.
The same is true of Dead Horse Point State Park, which also has a name with a little ghoul appeal.
There will be special activities in many of our communities. A popular one is the Witchstock Festival held on Historic 25th Street in Ogden. It runs through Oct. 31 and offers a Window Decorating Contest, Witch Shop, Witches Tea Party, Zombie Crawl, Kids Spooktacular Carnival, Freaker's Ball, Creepy Cowboy Country Dance, Trick or Treat Street and much more.
The Utah Symphony will present SUPERHERO HALLOWEEN on October 29, with theme music from favorite superhero classics, including Batman, X-Men, Superman and Spiderman.
See our events database for info on events where you will be traveling.
