Eureka Springs Halloween

Fall is a spooktacular time to be in Eureka Springs, and Halloween showcases the fun-loving, and rather eccentric side of this mysterious little city in the Arkansas Ozarks.

Come and wander these labyrinthine streets and explore the city's best kept underground secrets, as some of America's most haunted hotels from the Victorian era serve as the backdrop. From traditional small town trick-or-treating, to creepy ghost tours, haunting theatrical experiences, and even a full-scale Zombie Invasion, Eureka Springs has much to offer travelers yearning for a taste of the macabre for this Halloween!
