Even though many larger Halloween events have been scrapped or modified (thanks to COVID-19) there are still some great ways to celebrate around East Cobb and the surrounding areas. Trick or treating has not been cancelled, but some families have altered the way they may share candy or celebrate. If you plan to give out candy, leaving on your outdoor light is typically an indicator to those families going door to door.

  1. The Avenue at East Cobb Costume Event – Bring the kids in costume to The Avenue on Saturday, October 24th. There will be a pumpkin decorating contest and a chance to get a free Smallcakes cupcake.
  2. Boo at the Atlanta Zoo – One direction Trick-Or-Treating, outdoor entertainment with a thousand different animals from around the world! Sign up for your timed ticket for one of these dates: October 17, 18, 24, 25 and 31. The Halloween events are included with your general admission price. 
  3. Weekend events all month at The Outlet Shoppes – This shopping center will have live entertainment and movies on the weekends in October. October 25th is Hocus Pocus. They’ll also have a live DJ, and free popcorn, cotton candy and sno-cones. They will also have a trunk or treat event on Halloween. 
  4. Check out a Trunk-or-Treat event – You can try parking lot trick or treating at the Walmart on Cobb Parkway, October 21, 2-7pm. St. Andrew UMC (The Pumpkin Church) is still holding their Trunk-or-Treat on October 25th, 3-5pm. 
  5. Halloween Hike at the Chattahoochee Nature Center – This night hike is not designed to be scary (although there are people in animal costumes.) The 45 minute instructional walk ends with a campfire, music and a craft.
  6. Find many more Fall events at a pumpkin patch – Here is a link to a great list of different farms near Metro Atlanta and the entire state of Georgia. There are Fall festivals, haunted houses, hayrides, corn mazes and of course, lots and lots of pumpkins!
  7. Get a Doughnut – Wear your costume to a participating Krispy Kreme on Halloween to get a free doughnut.

While events may have a more intimate feel this year, we hope this list will help you find some local and East Cobb Halloween fun and activities to celebrate (and get some treats!)
