Halloween Fun, Haunted Houses, Ghost Walks and Pumpkin Patches
in Collin County
including Allen, Frisco, McKinney, and Plano
Haunted houses, pumpkin patches, 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.
While we are continually updating this page, be sure to check our Calendar of Events
for new Halloween
events and fall festivals added daily which may not appear on this page, which is reserved for annual recurring 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.
Haunted House, Trails, Ghosts and Goblins
Will you be hosting a haunted house, scare house or haunted maze? Be sure to check with your city or local government office to obtain all appropriate
permits and then submit your venue to us for inclusion.
