Moonfest is a blast. It takes place smack dab in the middle of downtown West Palm Beach – right in the heart of the Clematis Street District. Moonfest is set to go just a few nights before Halloween, on the evening of October 27. This ticketed event features live music, carnival games and of course, revelers in eccentric costumes. So don't be bashful, dress in something all too cute or all so outlandish. Moonfest draws big crowds and open to all of all ages, so be ready to have a howling good time.
The Leopard Lounge: Keep an Eye on the Ceiling
For just adult ghosts and ghouls, the famous Leopard Lounge at the historic Chesterfield Hotel Palm Beach, is the place to be. The Halloween Bash on October 27 has special menu items, drinks served in the glow of real Jack-O-Lanterns and every party-goer will have a chance to win a two-night stay. And remember once inside the Leopard Lounge, don’t forget to look up at the ceiling - trust us, you'll see why.
For the Teens, Kids and Young at Heart
For teens and the young of heart looking for frightful thrills and chills, Fright Nights at the South Florida Fairgrounds promises to scare your pants off (or at least give you a good scream). Expect terrifying haunts, scare zones, exciting carnival rides and more during October 18-20 and 25-27.
Not every event has terrors and horrors, not-so-scary things are happening with families in mind. Costume contests, trick-or-treating activities, pumpkin decorating, fall-themed games and dance parties take place at two first-rate attractions. On October 26, it's Halloween Nights at the South Florida Science Museum and Palm Beach Zoo's Boo at the Zoo is on for October 19-21 and 26-28. While back at the Fairgrounds, Spookyville is geared for children 12 and younger, it happens on October 19-21, 26-28 and 31.
