2019 Exhaustive List of Halloween Fun
including Pumpkin Patches, Haunted Houses, and Ghost Walks
in Collin County

including Allen, Frisco, McKinney, and Plano

Pumpkin patches, haunted houses, ghost walks, hay rides, and apple pie are all part of the fun as Fall approaches. We've found some places but would love to add to the list, so tell us if you know of any more Halloween traditions you have in Allen, Frisco, McKinney, Plano--or anywhere in Collin County.

This is a roundup article of all the pumpkin patches, haunted houses, Halloween events, festivals, trick or treating and ghostwalks we could find in Collin County. For a day-by-day listing of fall festivals and Halloween-related events, be sure to check our Calendar of Events.

Are you wondering if you are welcome to attend one of these events at a church if you don't share the same faith? Absolutely, you are welcome and no, the church folks won't be trying to 'convert' you or your children. These events are gifts to the community. Most events at churches are free, but some may include a small fee (when indicated on this page) to offset the cost.
