Marco Island is Warming Up for Halloween

Fall has arrived, and for many of us that just means the season for all things Halloween! With this fang-tastic holiday quickly approaching, we want to provide you with a few of the very best Halloween events happening in Marco Island. Ranging from family friendly to just plain spooky, there’s something for everyone this October.

Perhaps the biggest event of the season in Marco Island, the Halloween Spooktacular will take over Mackle Park on October 26. This event is a local favorite, and it’s easy to see why! With arts and crafts, inflatables, games and more, you will enjoy a day loaded with seasonal fun. There is even a haunted house (ages 10 and up) for those who are a bit more adventurous! The best part is that this event is entirely free.

Marco Island is lucky to be very close to Naples, meaning we’re also close to the Naples Zoo! This Halloween, be sure to check out Boo at the Zoo. Self described as “three days of tricks and treats,” this awesome event is perfect for the whole family. From October 25 through October 27, you’re invited to partake in costume contests, education stations, games and more – all included in the price of park admission! All children will receive free admission for all three days, as long as they show up in costume. The family costume contest winners receive a free zoo membership…check out these past winners with their Jurassic Park costumes!

Now time for the really spooky stuff! Ghosts, haunted locations, and scary tales await you with the Marco Mystery & History Tours. Sign up for a tour with a group from 2 to 50, led by guide Martha Horror. Though they don’t recommend the regular tour for kids, if you give them a call ahead of time and request a watered-down (but still fun and entertaining) tour, they will accommodate you. Marco Mystery & History Tours are by reservation only, so be sure to sign up now for a truly spooky Halloween adventure!

We know there are some people out there who don’t love Halloween-time as much as we do, to which we say: that’s fine! Come down anyway to escape October weather. Marco Island Lakeside Inn is a real treat in the heart of the city, with plenty of amenities to ensure your comfort during your stay. Perhaps your idea of a “perfect Halloween” is staying in watching movies in the comfort of your boo-tiful room – and the movies don’t have to be scary 😉

Thanks for reading, and we hope you are inspired to take a trip to Florida and hang around for a spell! Happy Haunting!
