If you’re wondering what goes bump in the night, you might very well be in for a delight! The nation’s capital is the perfect setting for activities to engage in for the spirit of Halloween, which is approaching next Spooky Sunday. And if you haven’t already, here are some fun activities that you can enjoy.
Spooky Events All Around
For starters, there’s the Spooky Pumpkin carving. They have that going on at the Potomac Overlook Recreation Center from about 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm, this Friday.
There’s a Mystery Mansion as well. This occurs on Friday, at the Woman’s Club of Chevy Chase! The club opens the door to host a family-friendly haunted house, pumpkin patch and a bonfire. There are weekend slots open throughout October 30th. Such an event goes on from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
On Saturday, There’s a Comedy and Vintage event, in which a coworking space hosts local comedians in telling their jokes, while you get to wear vintage, spooky clothing. That will occur from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm. It only costs about five dollars.
Pinewood Derby’s are also a big deal, as the Supreme Core Cider hosts a race with derby car kits. (In addition to a lot of cider, there are prizes available for winners.) It’s starting at 5 pm. Each kit costs about $30.
Finally, on Sunday, there’s a Dia De Los Muertos event happening on The Wharf. Many party-goes will go to the event area for the benefit of getting face painting and skull decorating. There’s also going to be a costume contest and a beer garden. This all occurs at the District Pier from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
Also, when you notice what else is going on Sunday, there’s an exhibit featuring artwork from incarcerated artists. It’s FREE, it’s at the RhizomeDC, and it’s happening from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The event is called Justice Arts Coalition presents We Belong Here: Reclaiming Space Through Art .
