December may have already passed us by, but some of the coldest winter days are still upon us! If you're dying to get out of the house with the kids this month but aren't ready to spend lots of time
Boise Fun & Spooky Fall Events
Dated: October 13 2021
Fall is one of the most stunning times in Boise. The City of Trees is known for its spectacular colors, and the city gets more excited about the season as it continues to change. Fall brings us pumpkins, flannel, and the fun of Halloween. We've rounded up a list of some spooky events for brave souls to experience this October...if you dare!
Not for kiddos; this is a great Halloween activity for adults only. Head to Downtown Caldwell to venture into the largest indoor haunted attraction in the Treasure Valley area. Featuring 13,000 square feet of pure terror in a century-old building, you'll never be the same once you've made it out of this haunted house. Hopefully, you're not squeamish.
Offering a 35-acre outdoor haunt, "The Haunted World," you won't want to miss this haunted cornfield and underground dungeon. If you're easily scared, the website even warns you about bringing a diaper, so plan accordingly. Since 2000, The Haunted World has provided more scary entertainment than any other haunted location in the Treasure Valley area.
If you prefer the historical over the frightening this spooky season, check out the list of offerings at the Old Idaho Penitentiary. Advance tickets are usually required for events that include paranormal investigations, Sweet Escape, or Squawky & Spirits. Many events are 21+, but they do have some family-friendly options as well.
Every Saturday in October, the Idaho Botanical Garden offers a fun experience for friends and families who aren't looking to be super scared but still want to get in on the Halloween fun! Live music, cider, food trucks, pumpkins, and the Scarecrow Stroll await you!
