Halloween is around the corner and we have the inside scoop on where you should go to make the most of the holiday! We’ve already shared local tips on the best pumpkin patches in the area, the scariest haunted houses in the area and our secret pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe with you all- and now we are sharing tips on where to go on Halloween in Branson!

  • Branson Landing :: Merchants will be open this year so you and the kids can go trick or treat in one safe, convenient location. Also, you don’t want to miss the Monster Mash Street Dance that starts here at 6:30 PM!
  • The McKenna Farm :: They have set up a big bale maze, corn maze, bounce pads, hay rides and pumpkins galore for you and the family! They are open 10 am – 6 PM week days and 10 am – 7 PM Friday and Saturday!
  • Big Cedar Haunted Caves :: The caves on Big Cedar’s property were discovered on accident, but they’ve made the most of them. Big Cedar is located near some of our properties and is an easy drive for some quick family fun!

Want to dress up, but forgot to go buy an outfit on time? Here are a few easy ideas you can recreate with items you already have at home!

  • Super Mario Brothers :: Grab a pair of overalls, a red or green shirt with a matching red or green hat {if you have the hat} and draw on a mustache with a black eyeliner pencil!
  • Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany’s :: All you need is a little black dress, a strand of pearls, and a high bun {and small tiara if you have one}! Classic and simple!
  • A Mime :: Throw on a striped shirt, paint your face white and add bright red lips! Throw on a beret too if you have one!
  • A Pirate : Again, if you have a striped shirt all you need are black pants and a bandanna! Tie the bandaa over the top of your head and draw on an eye patch with black eyeliner! You could even draw on a mustache and little beard if you want!
  • Risky Business :: Borrow a man’s oversized white shirt {wear some shorts or leggings underneath}, tall white socks and a pair of Rayban style sunglasses {or any sunglasses}!
