If You Love To Be Scared
This year, skip the haunted house and check out this event, which may or may not give you nightmares (hopefully not!). On Oct. 31, head to the Dark St. Louis Halloween Seminar: Presented by the St. Louis Paranormal Research Society, you have the chance to hear lecturers speak about the darker side of the paranormal. If that’s not enough, you’ll be at the Lemp Grand Hall, one of St. Louis’ most haunted spots.

If You Love Fall Festivities
Halloween calls for fall parades and family activities galore. The Bevo Mill Halloween Pet Parade will be the cutest event of the weekend and is for a good cause. On Halloween, come watch (or bring your own) adorable dogs in costume.

If You Love Frightening Movies
Halloween isn’t really Halloween without a scary movie, which is why you should head over to the Public Media Commons on Oct. 30 for their Halloween kick-off party. The Young Friends of St. Louis Public Radio and Nine Network are bringing Halloween Movie Night to STL. Enjoy two horror classics: “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Night of the Living Dead.” You can also have your cards read while sipping on some delicious drinks from The Fortune Teller Bar. Bring a blanket and enjoy the shows.

If You Love Your Costume
You may have been planning your costume for months and are going all out—and we appreciate you. If you’re putting in this much effort, you better be at an event that makes all the costume-madness worth it, right?

On Halloween night, Johnnie Brock’s Dungeon Halloween Bash will be a crowd-pleaser. There will be a costume contest, live music and all-inclusive access to Ballpark Village. Worry not – if you don’t have your costume together yet, you still have time and won’t want to miss this party.

If You Love The Arts
Rocky Horror Picture Show is back at the Tivoli Theatre and only until Oct. 31. We recommend grabbing tickets for All Hallows’ Eve and enjoying this classic while you can. Dress up as your favorite character and sing along to the movie with other Rocky fans. You won’t be able to get this experience at home!

If You Love Tradition
This weekend is all about ghosts and ghouls, and deserves some historical recognition too. On Sunday, head to Cherokee Street to observe Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Learn more about this Mexican holiday at the all-day event, including elaborate altars from local vendors and businesses.
