There are many things to love about fall. I love the beautiful colors of leaves changing, football, bonfires with the family, and of course, Halloween.
For years, my family and I have hosted Halloween parties, decorated our house with tombstones and scary pumpkins, and visited our local haunted houses for thrills and chills. There is no Halloween event that excites us more than Fort Wayne's annual "Fright Night".
On October 20th, downtown Fort Wayne will be taken over by ghosts, goblins, and zombies of all ages. Fright Night is an all-day event that runs from noon 'til midnight. More than fourteen cultural establishments will host activities that will be fun for all ages.
If you love the Walking Dead, you can transform yourself into a lifeless zombie and participate in the popular Zombie Walk. Young children will enjoy the Halloween Haunt, an event featuring pumpkin bowling, face-painting, and a scavenger hunt. Pumpkin carvers will love a visit to the Pumpkin Zone where they will see creative pumpkin carving demonstrations and enjoy pumpkin games. Those looking for a real scare can spend time in the Historic Embassy Theatre with Indiana's Paranormal Inquisitor on a real, live ghost hunt.
There are so many great activities that I get excited thinking about them all. Fright Night offers both free and pay events. Visit frightnightdowntown.com to learn more about this awesome event.
If you love Halloween as much as I do, you will not want to miss Fort Wayne's Fright Night. Grab your family, find your favorite costume, and head downtown Fort Wayne on October 20th. You are guaranteed to have a spooktacular time!
