If you are looking for a new way to celebrate Halloween, look no further than a weekend or day trip to Bald Head Island.  While we have several great events occurring during the month of October, our Halloween Celebration will be among the most popular activities we host during the season.  


Beginning on Friday, October 27th, kids will be able to attend parties with costume contests and trick-or-treat caravans during Halloween weekend.  In addition, we have events that parents can enjoy as well.  The 2017 Southern Living Idea House Tour will still be open during the weekend.  You can purchase tickets in advance here.  Would you like to venture off the island for some haunted activities?  There are plenty of scary events full of fun being held in Southport and Wilmington North Carolina.  Below is just a short list of Halloween events happening around Eastern, North Carolina October 27th through October 31st.
