Halloween in the Meadowlands Thursday Oct. 27!


Tickets are now on sale for the NJSEA’s annual Halloween at the Meadowlands, which this year takes place on Thursday, Oct. 27, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst.

The kid’s event is all treats and no tricks, with games, crafts, and activities throughout the evening, including hayrides and the Witch’s Den.

Take your kids on the “Historical Figures of the Meadowlands” Not-So Spooky Walk where they’ll meet the Pirates who inhabited the region in the 1600s, Muskrat Trappers, Pig Farmers and other distinctive figures that give the Meadowlands its unique personality.

Registration is required and tickets are $8 per person. Walks are recommended for children ages 5-12 and last approximately 30-40 minutes. When registering, please select your “Not-So-Spooky Walk” time slot, but don’t forget to come early and enjoy all the activities!
