Spook Yourself Silly in Knoxville

Are you thinking of new ways to entertain your children this Halloween? Do you want something new other than a costume party and knocking on neighbors’ houses for trick-or-treating? Head to Knoxville for their spooky events and have some memorable experiences that your children will remember forever—or at least until Christmas.

Boo! at the Zoo

Boo at the ZooFrom October 10 to 13, 17 to 20, and 24 to 27, bring your little ones in their scariest costumes to the Knoxville Zoo for their Boo! at the Zoo event. This haunting event has been a Halloween tradition for over 27 years for many families in Knoxville and beyond. Enjoy the great music and fun games at the Monster Mash tent in the Clayton Family Kids Cove. Take awesome pictures with your favorite costumed characters around the zoo and ride in the “haunted” carousel, the Scary-Go-Round—the only carousel that move backwards. And of course, don’t let your children miss the traditional trick-or-treating for the sweetest treats.

Tickets for children 2 years and up are for $7 each, and children under 2 enter free.

Hearth Scares Ball

Dress up as a fairy-tale character or your favorite ax murderer at the 3rd annual Hearth Scares Ball at James White’s Fort on October 25. Music and merrymaking start from 7 until 11 in the evening, and enjoy the appetizer buffet while dancing to the Chillbillies. Spooky decorations are in order, of course, and join the Silent Auction while you’re at it! You’ll definitely have a “howling” good party at the Hearth Scares Ball. Tickets are at $75 each and all proceeds will be for the preservation of James White’s Fort and its educational programs.

Complete your Halloween entertainment package by booking a room at the Maple Grove Inn, a Knoxville bed and breakfast. Built in 1799, take yourself back to the 18th century with the inn’s antique decors, hand-carved fireplaces, and family heirlooms. Ghost-hunting within the premises are at your own risk.
