October is a Spooky and Fun Month in Boone County

From goblins and ghosts to pumpkins and Halloween costumes, Boone County has fall activities and events happening all over.

For an extra frightening Halloween experience, the Indiana Fear Farm in Jamestown celebrates its 22nd year with a barn tour that takes you down dark corridors where groaning zombies, evil ghosts and a bloodthirsty cast of ghoulish characters will have you screaming in fright as evil lurks around every corner.The Indiana Fear Farm

Or take central Indiana’s most terrifying hayride at the Fear Farm where a headless horseman roams the grounds, explosions go off and monsters await you down the trail. You’ll shriek in terror and cheer for more.

“The Indiana Fear Farm is open through October and continues to pack more screams per visit every year with a farm full of creepy scenes and even creepier actors.” Says Boone CVB Executive Director, Allyson Gutwein, “Whether you choose a trip to the Slaughter Barn or hop on the haunted hayride, a Fear Farm experience is both fun and safe…but very spooky.”

The Fright Forest Cirq at the Boone 4H Fairgrounds in Lebanon is open on October weekends with haunted trail hayrides as a menacing group of sinister actors waiting to jump out and scare you. Sunday, October 15 is a performance of the Peru Amateur Circus.

A more historical but still spooky event is the annual Zionsville Ghost Walk sponsored by the Sullivan Munce Museum. Visitors are taken on a tour through the Village with stops along the way at historical homes where actors, dressed in period garb reenact true ghost stories and haunted tales of lost spirits from Zionsville’s ghostly past.

“October is also the time to celebrate the fall season in Boone County.” says Gutwein, “So there’s more than just frightening Halloween events to enjoy.”

A trip to Dull’s Tree Farm & Pumpkin Patch makes for the perfect family outing with hundreds of pumpkins waiting for you to take them home. Have fun with over 45 different activities for kids of all ages, including hayrides, barnyard bouncers, a pumpkin cannon, mini train, farm animals and more. Take a break with a cold apple cider, Bavarian pretzel or fresh grilled sandwich.The Indiana Fear Farm

“Dull’s Tree Farm has become one of Boone County’s favorite attractions for seasonal events.” Says Gutwein, “An October visit to their Pumpkin Harvest is extra special as the farm is filled with adventures, crafts, great food and lots of fun for everyone.”

Kids in Halloween costumes are invited to the safe family fun events that include costume contests, entertainment and lots of treats at Whitestown’s Halloween Trick or Treat trail, Lebanon’s Mischief on Meridian, or Zionsville’s Trick or Trees Trail.

“Plan to spend a spine-tingling evening, a day on the farm picking the perfect pumpkin or coming to a Halloween costume party.” says Gutwein, “With so many different events happening, October is a great month to Discover Boone County.”
