What are the best Halloween towns in Vermont?
Newport uses the fall in Vermont as a time for spooky fun. They have candy, a parade, and a haunted house. It’s a fun event for the whole family. It is truly the one town in Vermont that turns into a Halloween wonderland!
Rutland is a cool Halloween town in Vermont that celebrates with a parade and has since 1959. How cool. There were some fun and spooky songs out in 1959 that I imagine playing on record players all over town. Poison Ivy by the Coasters, The Mummy by the Naturals, and Voodoo by the Ivies could’ve soundtracked children bobbing for apples after the parade. (Parents, was “bobbing for apples” a thing at your parties as a kid?)
There is even a haunted hike in Vermont! This Horrifying Haunted Trail In Vermont Will Leave You Shaking In Your Boots and will let you in on the Emmons Island Haunted Trail in Grand Isle.
Where can I go apple picking in Vermont?
Apple picking is a lot of fun, and they really do taste better just off the tree. It’s a great way to spend time because it’s active and easy. Also, you can annoy children with great apple jokes. Here are some to get you started:
- What do you get if you cross an apple with a shellfish? A crab apple.
- How do you make an apple turnover? Push it downhill.
- What kind of apple isn’t an apple? A pineapple.
- Why did the apple go out with the prune? He couldn’t find a date.
Nothing makes a pre-teen feel as excited as when they realize more apple jokes are on the way! Have fun!
