2017 Not-So-Scary Halloween Activities in Richmond

Not So Scary Halloween ActivitiesFor some of us, there’s nothing better than being scared out of our wits during the Halloween season. For others, dealing with toddlers every day is scary enough…so when Halloween rolls around, we’re looking for some not-so-scary Halloween activities.

While there are plenty of ways to spend a haunted Halloween in Richmond, there are also many events that are family-friendly and fright-free, which is especially important for little ones who cry even when a friendly clown (not to mention the scary Halloween kind) looks at them. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite Halloween and fall-themed events that are perfect for everyone in the family, from adults and teens, right down to the little ones. And, because many of the following events let you and the kids dress up, you’ll get to make the most of those costumes you spend months planning and a small fortune paying for!

Take a look at these upcoming events in the Richmond and if there’s a fright-free (or not too scary) event that we might have overlooked, let us know at cs@richmondmom.com!

Join the friends and staff of Tuckahoe Plantation for a fun-filled Halloween celebration – and if you dare, take a ghost tour of the famously haunted Tuckahoe Plantation grounds. Built in the 1700s, the house and grounds have long been reported as the sites of spectral apparitions, including a murdered peddler, a “Gray Lady,” and a forlorn young bride who is said to haunt the garden walk, now named the “Ghost Walk” in her honor. If ghostly tales and supernatural stories are not your style, don’t worry. There will be plenty of family-friendly games, face painting, a hayride, mazes and more. Reservations are not required, simply click “interested” on Tuckahoe’s Facebook page. Call (804) 774-1614 or email http://tuckahoeplantationtours@gmail.com with questions.
