Drive-Thru & Indoor Trick or Treating Options in Huntsville

BOOOOOO! The weather forecast is looking wet and rainy for Halloween this year, but chin up ghosts & goblins – we’re here to list our favorite indoor and drive-through opportunities for trick-or-treating so Halloween weekend is saved!

A little Halloween Pro-Tip: It’s always good form to come with a couple bags of candy to contribute to indoor ToT venues. Only some places require it, but ALL places will appreciate it. Plus, with more families looking for a dry place to have fun that night, the extra loot will always come in handy.

You can browse more Halloween events for kids in Huntsville on our Event Calendar! We’ll be updating rained out events there too.

  • Thanks so much for this! I had not heard about a few of these yet. We are also thinking of going to library for their trick or treating and puppet show.

    If weather does permit outdoor trick or treating, do you have any advice for typical hours in the area? This would be our first year trick or treating, and I haven’t been able to find any info on it. (We’re in Madison.)

    • When Halloween falls on a weekday it seems 6PM is the commonly agreed upon time to start since the majority of people need time to get home from work and at least think about dinner. That said, 5ish or 5:30 wouldn’t seem out of the question on a weekend but expect that more people will have their lights turned on the later you go.

      • Thank you, Jennifer. That was about what I was thinking. It doesn’t look like the weather is going to cooperate, though. :/ I hope it lets up long enough for us to hit a few houses. My little guy has been looking forward to it.
