Findlay Trick-or-Treat

Look out for little ghosts and goblins looking for special treats-no tricks! It’s Trick-Or-Treat Night!

Findlay Halloween Parade

Spectators are invited to dress in their best family friendly Halloween costumes and cheer on the participants as they walk (or ride, roll, or drive) by! There are plenty of participants in this year’s parade, including six Hancock County bands and many great floats featuring costumes of both the spooky and family friendly variety.

NWORPS Pumpkin Train

Gather your family for a magical ride to the Pumpkin Patch! Rides on the Pumpkin Train at Northwest Ohio Railroad Preservation are off and running until October 22nd! Make sure you try to make your way through the corn maze, great for children and adults! There will be candy at different stations as you make your way through! You won’t want to miss this fun fall tradition.


An evening of spooky fun awaits visitors of all ages at the Hancock Historical Museum’s annual Spooktacular! Crafts, games, tours of the “haunted” Hull House, seasonal treats and more await! Costumes encouraged!

Spirits & Boos: Haunted History Tour & Pub Crawl

Back by popular demand! Explore downtown Findlay on a guided walking tour to learn more about its history, the good, the bad, and the haunted! Reservations must be made in advance.

Fear Factory & Purgatory

Skully returns for the 15th year of bringing your darkest fears to life! Whether he’s building your nightmares in the Fear Factory or digging up some scares in Purgatory, you’ll be in for a real scream! $10/person

Suter’s Corn Maze

Suter’s Corn Maze has returned, so drive in, fly in or sail in as they celebrate all the “Twists and Turns in Transportation!” Enjoy the Corn Cannons, human hamster wheel, giant corn box and more! Remember to visit the apple cider press!

Haunted Ghost Town

Ghost Town has sat dormant for years, slowly rotting away – until now. The rumors say that sinister forces have been gathering at the old attraction and they’re just dying for you to finally join them! This attraction features a haunted attraction, Zombie Laser Tag and a gift shop. Bring the little ones on Saturday afternoons for the Jr. Haunt where non-scary friendly monsters will pass out candy and a friendly clown will pass out balloons!

Scream Acres

Why are you afraid of the dark? Scream Acres is here to remind you! Two horrific attractions await: the dark paths and evil entities of the Haunted Corn Maze and the Pandemonium Project, where twisted biological experiments lurk in the shadows and around every corner.

Putnam County Haunted Cornfield

The ghouls and demons of the cornfield are stalking you through the stalks – and the next victim they want is you! If you somehow survive the cornfield, don’t get too comfortable. You still have to make it through two levels of pure horror in the barn and then brave the trailers of terror!

Hammer Brother’s Haunted Circus

Years ago, Alistar and Ezikiel Hammer invited a circus to perform on the family farm and, fed with darkness and unknown chemical compounds, turned the big top into a living nightmare. Find your way through maze of mutated horrors and save the few humans who can help you – or die trying.
