Halloween in Alexandria

This October, celebrate the spookiest time of year in Alexandria, a city with a remarkable past whose spirits continue to haunt its streets today. Halloween festivities stretch across the month of October, encouraging families and visitors to don their most creative costumes and learn about Alexandria’s history while indulging in sweets from favorite local “haunts.” Trick-or-treat throughout the Old Town Boutique District, strut down the dog-walk in the Doggy Howl-o-ween Costume Contest or embark on a fright-worthy late-night tour of Alexandria’s haunted hotspots. Only a city as riddled with history as Alexandria can produce chills to last all season.
