7 Things You Wouldn’t Expect People To Do On Halloween

January 16th, 2018

Halloween is an exciting time for children. They get to pick out a costume and trudge up and down the streets of their neighborhood asking for candy. It is truly a children’s holiday. If you do not have small children at home, you might be looking for something to do that will get you off the roads filled with children and away from the chaos in your neighborhood. If you have young children, you might not want them taking candy from strangers. Here are 7 things you wouldn’t expect people to do on Halloween.


Going to your local theater for a movie night is a great way to avoid all the Halloween activity. From the latest action movie and sweetest romance to the latest kid’s movie, there is always something new and exciting to watch.

Dinner Out 

Whether you enjoy a romantic dinner in a high-end Italian restaurant or a family favorite restaurant, you can escape the Halloween shenanigans by going out to dinner. If you have young children, many restaurants will enjoy having children dressed in costumes and might even have candy to hand out.


An evening of bowling is definitely a nontraditional Halloween activity. Whether you go with the family or a small group, you will certainly have a good time seeing who can knock down the most pins.

Speedway Racing

Here is your chance to take the ride of your life. On this indoor go kart racing track, you can race around the track as fast as you dare. These karts run on electricity instead of gasoline so the air does not have that nasty gas smell and fumes.

Community Service

If you have children, Halloween is a great time to teach them about giving back to their community. You can call around to the churches and food banks in the area and see who needs volunteers on this night.


More and more, malls are looking for ways to bring in customers everyday including Halloween. Some malls in the area might even offer trick-o-treating for the smallest members of the family.

Edgar Allen Poe National Historic Site

With Halloween falling on a Friday this year, you can leave work early and start this spooky holiday at the home of the master of terror, Edgar Allen Poe. Be sure to snap a selfie with the raven.

Speedway Racing offers you an exciting chance to do something different this Halloween. With two locations open until 11pm on Halloween this year, we are close to you. If you want to make it a Halloween Party, we can offer you special rates on a private party. Contact us to learn more about go kart racing and any specials we are running.
