Fall is one of my favorite times of year because it is such a wonderful time to be outdoors! Halloween is also one of my favorite holidays ever, and Utah does not disappoint when it comes to family fun. Check out all of the Halloween fun in Utah in 2018!
To help you make the best family memories this season we have compiled a HUGE list of all the fun must do fall/Halloween activities to do here in Utah.
Not local to Utah? Not to worry! Here are a few tips to be able to find fun where you live!
- Check your local city website. A lot of them will have a calendar or special events section.
- Facebook! Did you know you can search for local family friendly events right from Facebook? Just click on “Events” over on the left hand side, and then click “Discover” then you can search for fun right in your area!
- Use your library! Lots of libraries will have events going on, or will be a place where you can find info for more community things going on.
- Don’t forget to check Groupon!
- Word of Mouth. Ask around, put out a call on social media, see what friends are up to, and then get out and have some fun!
For those of you in Utah, here is the list! Please let us know what fun you have this season and if you know of anything we missed leave us a comment!
