5 Small American Towns to Celebrate Halloween

by Travelbag on 30 October 2017, 10:10AM

Witch tours of Salem, Massachusetts and New York’s grand parades aren’t the only places in America ideal for celebrating Halloween.

All across the United States, there are cute and charming towns that throw small time but intimate celebrations on the last day of October. We’ve rounded up five alternative American holiday ideas:

Chatham, Massachusetts

A hundred miles southeast of Salem lies Chatham. Isolated in the Colorado mountains, this town is filled with pumpkin creations come Halloween - designs are displayed in the Pumpkin Patch in front of the First Congregational Church of Chatham on Main Street – a sort of open air pumpkin gallery.

St. Helens, Oregon

"Halloweentown," was shot in this little place and locals pay homeage to the movie every year with a month of celebratig the Autumn holiday. The most eagerly anticipated event is the Pumpkin Lighting Ceremony but 2017 will be a little different with as a Halloweentown cast reunion is in the works.

Romeo, Michigan

The town name might suggest it’s more of a Valentine’s Day kind of town. The ‘Terror on Tillson Street’ event is the main event – household decorations are somewhat more elaborate than elsewhere and are all assembled in the build up to the 31st.

Princeton, New Jersey

Rumour has it that there are ghosts all over this small town, from the college campus to the cemetery to the surrounding neighbourhoods. If ghost hunting is how you want to spend your Halloween this year, the Princeton Tour Company will supply you with everything you need to have a ghostly encounter.

Sleepy Hollow, New York

The list wouldn't be complete without the Headless Horseman. You'll love the annual Great Jack 'O Lantern Blaze or taking a tour through the creepy Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Don't miss out on the Lyndhurst Castle, its strong Gothic character is perfect for this time of year and makes a decent alternative to the New York Village Parade.

 

Discover something different this Halloween in one of America’s lesser known towns. You’ll be amazed by the decorations and astounded at what can be achieved with a few pumpkins and a sharp knife. Happy Halloween.
