The scariest night of the year is a spooky good time in the Lake George Area. From ghost tours exploring the past to good old fashioned trick or treating with the kids, Halloween in the Lake George Area is frightfully fun.

Halloween is the spookiest time of the year in the Lake George Area. With events held all October long leading up to that fateful night, there’s plenty to do if you want to get your Halloween kick. No discussion of Halloween begins without Great Escape’s Fright Fest. This annual October event transforms the Great Escape into a terrifying park filled with unknown terrors. You can explore the park while attempting to outwit whatever lurks in the dark and board the thrilling rides – if you dare.

No Halloween season in the Lake George Area is complete without a visit to the Fort William Henry Museum. While no standing army has occupied the fort in centuries, specters of the past seem to live on. Towns in the region, such as Warrensburg, hold ghost tours describing the lives – and deaths – of some of their more infamous former residents.

Halloween in the Lake George Area is one night that even the bravest of visitors can catch a scare.
