Celebrating Halloween on Martha’s Vineyard is a unique experience, and is one of the more anticipated fall events in the region. Of course, families can enjoy the usual trick-or-treat activities complete with spooky decorations, but for those who want something a little more flavorful and interesting, there are a few Halloween activities on Martha’s Vineyard that may draw your interest.
Ghost Walking Tour In Oak Bluffs
Oak Bluffs has a variety of Halloween activities for adults, children, and families, but one of the most unique is the Ghost Walking Tour.
If you want to learn some interesting and spooky facts about Oak Bluffs, this tour will meet your needs. It takes you through some of the more historic areas in Oak Bluffs, and offers tales about people who inhabited some of the supposedly haunted homes.
And because it takes place in the evening, there is typically an eerie vibe that is perfect for that time of year.
The Ghosts of Edgartown Package
The history of Martha’s Vineyard dates back to 1642, and Edgartown is one of the most historic and interesting spots in the area.
The Ghosts of Edgartown Package is a full-service tour of some of the more eerie places in Edgartown, and also includes an overnight stay at the Kelley House, a famous hotel on the island.
The package includes two tickets to the Edgartown Ghost Walking Tours, and a complimentary copy of Haunted Island: True Ghost Stories of Martha’s Vineyard, a book written by a local author that gives you insight into the island’s supernatural history.
Happy Haunting In Edgartown
This annual celebration of Halloween in Edgartown is one of the most anticipated fall events of the year.
The costume contest is one of the most intense on the island, and the 2017 version of Happy Haunting takes place on a Sunday, which means that Main Street will be shut down so that anyone who wants to participate in trick-or-treat fun can do so.
What makes Happy Haunting even more unique is that most major businesses on Main Street open their doors to welcome those who want to collect as much candy as they can carry.
And if you want to get properly excited for Happy Haunting, you can also take part in the Morning Glory Farm Annual Pumpkin Festival in mid-October, which includes hayrides, catered food, and music.
Steep Yourself In the Wonder of Martha’s Vineyard
Fall activities enhance the appeal of Martha’s Vineyard, because they capture the unique qualities that make the island so distinct from other popular hotspots in the country.
