It’s time for scary, silly and all kinds of costumes in all corners of our community. Here are a few things to know about Halloween in Fairfax County.
Some communities, cities and counties designate a day other than Oct. 31 for trick-or-treating. Fairfax County Government does NOT set a different date. Halloween is Tuesday, Oct. 31. Your homeowner’s association or apartment complex may set other times for events, but neighborhood trick-or-treating is the evening of Oct. 31.
Looking for a safe and family-friendly way to celebrate the spooky season of Halloween? Buckle up and visit some of the most festive home haunts in Fairfax County, where local residents deck out their homes with ghosts, goblins, monsters and ghouls. Visit Fairfax has all the details and addresses.
