Halloween is a fun holiday that brings the kids out in all of us. Ross County will be alive…or undead… this Halloween season with plenty of festivities! Whether you enjoy getting scared along haunted trails, family friendly spooky fun, or just enjoy dressing up with the kids and going trick or treating – this holiday is all in good fun and Chillicothe has plenty to keep you busy.
Ross County gets a little more scary this year with the addition of Scioto Society’s “Haunted Mountain” but it is going to pair up perfectly with “Terror in the Hills.” If you enjoy a good scare these should be on list of to-do this Halloween. Both offering haunted trails that will provide the scares and Halloween fun you’re seeking. If you’re looking for something that is a little more family friend, check out “Haunted Hills at Magic Waters.” Looking for something a little more paranormal? The annual “Ghost Walk” will take you through buildings with reports of hauntings. You can also tour the Majestic Theatre and hear the unexplained events that have happened.
