Spooky (and Not-So-Spooky) Ways to Celebrate Halloween in Southwest Florida

BY October 25, 2018

Need a good scare? Or maybe just a fun time with the family? Southwest Florida features plenty of ways to get you in the Halloween spirit (minus the chill in the air, of course). 

Scare Level: High 
Terror on 20th started as just another home with some decorations and evolved into a frightful haunted house open only on Halloween night.
The Naples Haunted “Gross” House on the Collier County Fairgrounds certainly lives up to its name. Saturday (Oct. 27) is the last day for festivities, which include food vendors, hayrides and trick-or-treat for kids. 
A Nightmare on Third Street is another private home that opens its doors to scare the public. The Fort Myers home is open Saturday (Oct. 27) and Halloween nights. 
Legends of Oblivion Haunted House is a huge walk-thru fright-fest at the Lee Civic Center organized by Fort Myers native and Hollywood special effects artist Wayne Anderson. Final day is Halloween. 
Mike Greenwell’s Family Fun Park hosts a haunted hike through Halloween night. 

Scare Level: Low
Fifth Avenue South in Naples hosts the annual Halloween on Fifth Spooktacular for families Halloween evening.
Farmer Mike’s U Pick Corn Maze and Fall Festival is a Bonita tradition with both a haunted and non-haunted corn maze. This year it ends on Saturday (Oct. 27).  
Mall-O-Ween at Miromar Outlets hosts a trick-or-treat, plus a kid and pet costume contest on Tuesday (Oct. 30). Note: This was rescheduled from Wednesday due to Present Trump’s rally at Hertz Arena. 
Here’s a unique way to spend Halloween night: Shangri-La Springs is celebrating the Day of the Dead with Mexican cuisine, art installations, music and more. And, if you haven’t been there yet, Alliance for the Art’s Dia de los Muertos exhibit runs through Nov. 3.
