Find a Cabin
Boo in the zoo
For an experience that gets “wild” be sure to take the whole family to Boo at The Zoo! Visit Big Bear Alpine Zoo for their annual Halloween event and tour the animal exhibits dressed in your favorite Halloween costume! Arts and crafts, games, and even a scavenger hunt will provide hours of fun for the whole family. Think you’ve got the best costume? Enter in the costume contest and find out! Join in on the feeding tour and watch as the animals get fed fun Halloween-themed treats. The animals aren’t the only ones who will be getting treats that night. Candy will be handed out by ghouls and goblins throughout the zoo so make sure you bring a bag or a bucket to hold lots of candy! Make sure to bring a small pumpkin with you for $1 off of your admission.
Halloween in the Village
For your fun-filled day of Halloween activities, bring your little goblins, ghosts, witches, and more to The Village for trick-or-treating. The Village shopping center is famous for its amazing eateries and beautiful boutiques but during Halloween time it turns into a spooktacular place to grab the best Halloween treats. With more than 50 stops throughout, you’re sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! When we say this event is for the whole family though, we mean it. Bring your four-legged family member dressed up in their Halloween costume and enter them in The Village pet costume contest hosted at Copper Q. Be sure to let us know if you plan to participate in the event and we will help you find a pet-friendly cabin for your stay!
During Halloween, Gold Rush Mining Co turns into an eerie ghost town! Come smile among the jack-o-lanterns and explore the abandoned ghost town and graveyard. There are so many photo ops along the way so don’t forget to bring your camera! Once you’ve explored the ghost town, make sure you participate in the free ghost town scavenger hunt, “The Adventures of Glitter Gulch”. Use your detective skills and keen eyesight to search for various items hidden among the ghosts and ghouls in the abandoned town. You won’t want to miss out on this creepy-crawly hunt.
Paint and Sip
