Halloween Fun in 2020

With Halloween fast approaching and concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic once again on the rise, our community has found ways to say stay true to the traditions of Halloween and maintain safe conditions for all. Here are a few ways you can participate in this year’s spookiest season yet.

Thrill seekers looking to spend Halloween with frights will be glad to know that both of our community’s haunted house parks are open for business. Niles Scream Park, a 24 minute drive from South Bend, is open every weekend including Halloween. Fear Itself Legend Park, located in Mishawaka, is also open each weekend. Both offer creepy, thrilling, and all around good times with teams of terrifying actors and elaborate attractions aiming to scare the daylights out of you. Fun for both friends and family awaits, but make sure you remember to buy your tickets online in advance to assist in social distancing.

For a more mild, yet still festive Halloween experience, Thistleberry Farm is open all week long for the remainder of October, offers tons of activities. A huge corn maze, jumping pillow, and an apple cannon are just a few of the top attractions. Of course, no Fall season would be complete without picking up a pumpkin or two. Thistleberry farm offers barrels of both exotic and classic pumpkins big or small. If you stop by this South Bend farm be sure to pick up a delicious bag of savory kettle corn on your way out.

Although this isn’t the Halloween we all anticipated this year, we can still make the most of it. Grab some friends and try out some of these festivities, it may just be worth your while!
