October Fun in Columbia

It’s Halloween time! South Carolina has much to offer during Autumn. In this article, we’ll cover some of the most exciting festivals and places you can attend, that are at most, on a two-hour drive from Columbia!


Fall Festival and Corn Maze and Denver Downs Farm, Anderson - Fan of Halloween? Well, this festival is for you. The farm at Denver Downs masterfully combines the day-to-day activities of farm life, as well as the spooky traits of the Halloween tradition! Singing pumpkin lights, corn maze trips during the night and barnyard bonfires are only part of the whole experience!


Boone Hall Fright Nights, Mount Pleasant - Boone Hall is the state’s largest haunted multi-attraction Halloween event! We have to warn you though, this event is only for hardcore enthusiasts! After all, would a mere Halloween fan try to participate in an event with the name “Scary Tales Haunted Hayride”? 


Haunted Jail Tour, Charleston - Do you want to feel what some of the South’s most notorious criminals felt? Do you want to connect to the past in an unconventional, slightly scary way? Then this event is for you! But again, it’s not for the faint of heart! 


Annie’s Bed and Breakfast, Montmorenci - Fan of ghost stories? Annie’s Bed and Breakfast will offer you the opportunity to explore one of the most haunted buildings in the Post Civil War history of South Carolina! Rumors say that the ghost of a little girl can still be heard, crying for her mama.


Hall Of Horrors, Cayce - Last but not least (most of you hardcore scary fans are familiar with it!), the Hall Of Horrors! Very few places can match the spooky environment of this place, which is the reason why so many people come back every year! If you are too impatient to wait in line, the area around the hall has much to offer, including snacks, games, and the good old photo booth! 

We wish you happy holidays! If there’s something we can do to help you avoid real horrors on the road, let us know!
