How to have a Happy Halloween in Door County

Door County welcomes Halloween with a number of happenings. Some are creepy and scary, but most are happy and fun.

Here’s a look at what’s going on to celebrate Halloween on Wednesday, Oct. 31.

In harmony with the Halloween season, Third Avenue Playhouse, 239 N. Third Ave., Sturgeon Bay, will host a Halloween Film Festival at 7 p.m. Oct. 31. Classic horror films—“The Little Shop of Horrors” and “House on Haunted Hill” --will be shown.

But let’s not forget Halloween is for kids, right? The Sister Bay Lions Club is sponsoring a Halloween party for kids from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 31, at the Sister Bay firehouse. Prizes will be awarded to children who donate eyeglasses for the Lions eyeglass project.

ghost-tours-of-door-countyPoh’s Corner Pub is hosting a Rock Jam at 8 p.m. to midnight on Halloween night. Featured will be blues-rock by guitar-wizard Chris Aaron, who will be joined by other Door County musicians.

Door County Trolley runs its “Ghost Tours of Door County” tour 6 p.m. daily through Oct. 31. People hear about sunken ships, haunted lighthouses and more. Trolley tours depart from Orchard Country Winery, 9197 Hwy. 42, Fish Creek.

And for the brave of heart, there’s a Fear on the Farm tour at the Door County Adventure Center, 4497 Ploor Rd., Sturgeon Bay. Included is haunted night zip lining.


Get back on the ground in the corn maze at Schopf Dairy View County Store, 5169 Cty. Rd. I, Sturgeon Bay. This year’s maze theme is “Cookie for President.” Kids and adults can explore the massive maze (open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) that’s creatively carved through about 10 miles of cornfields.

corn-mazeCookie the cow is Dairy View’s mascot, depicted in advertising and a tall cow monument on the Schopf Hilltop Dairy farm. Take a break and head into the store (open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) for caramel apple ice cream, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin fudge and more.
