Ready for Halloween fun!

amazing trick-or-treating. With the leaves turning and a chill in the air this fall looks to provide the perfect Halloween night. In a city so vast and diverse it’s hard to know where to find the best trick-or-treating. Let’s take a look at five  trick-or-treating treasure troves.

1. Number one on our list of amazing trick-or-treating venues is St.Elmo. This tight knit community nestled at the bottom of Lookout Mountain offers a safe and fun trick-or-treating experience. The elegant and stately Victorian homes only add to the ambiance of this magical night.

2. The Northshore presents us with an exciting and active trick-or-treating experience. With it’s rolling hills, trendy venues, organic shops, and extraordinary parks this trick-or-treating trek provides you with beautiful views, wholesome treats and an active time make for a health friendly Halloween.

3. Signal Mountain is a trick-or-treating spot not to be missed! With a community that celebrates children, this is a fantastic spot to collect goodies and find community spirit. You can even take a break from the candy craze and pop over to the Pumpkin Patch playground. This playground just teems with the spirit of Halloween, filled with huge wooden playsets, child-size ziplines and cheery faced jack-o-lanterns. Afterward stop by the Fairmount Orchard for a cup – or gallon – of the best cider around!

4. Just a short drive outside of Chattanooga is Cleveland Tennessee. Cleveland offers an amazing block party on Halloween. This 25 year tradition starts at 5 pm and lasts until 8:30 pm. This awesome community block party features jump houses, awesome trick-or-treating and a costume contest. This is one event not to miss.

5. Just outside of Chattanooga is another gem for trick-or-treating. Hixson has a plethora of neighborhoods, the Northgate Mall, and if you are looking for the safety and security of trunk or treating there are many churches.

So whether you want to enjoy a healthy and active Halloween, a candy gorge, or a secure time, you will find it in Chattanooga this Halloween!

Chattanooga is full of things to do on Halloween and during the two weekends before – that’s this weekend and next weekend, just in case you don’t have a calendar handy!

If you don’t have plans yet, take a look at some of these unusual, but fun, things to do. All of these events are kid-friendly, but would be fun without the little ones, too:

Ride the Eerie Express:


Take a Ghost Tour:


Visit Lake Winnepespookah:


Take a trip through a Haunted Cavern – “where no one can hear you scream.”  (Note: This is the only activity on the list that could be difficult for sensitive little ones. Also, they do use a smoke machine, and it is a cave, so if you have someone with asthma, be aware!)


Take the kids and say “Boo!” in the zoo:


Laugh and scream at some pumpkins at the Nature Center:


Do some shopping at the Haunted Market:


Meet some underwater spooks at the aquarium during Thrills, Gills, and Chills:
