The beauty of the Smoky Mountains kinda takes the spooky out of Halloween so area businesses go to great lengths to 'Boo it up' for your holiday away from home. If you're going to be here on Halloween and the few days before, you can participate in several events for both adults and children. Bring your best costumes, have a great time and share your photos with us on Facebook!
October 27-28: "Scared and Kornfused?"
During the day, Kyker Farms is a great place for a fall outing. Adults and kids of all ages can experience the Century Farm corn maze, pumpkin patch and hayrides. But come dark on Friday and Saturday nights in October, you'll find Zombie Blaterz and The Trail at Kyker Farms beckoning those seeking spooky thrill and chills to choose their adventure! Zombie Blaterz is an interactive paintball ride through Dead Woods, where the living will blast zombies discovered with zombie-sighting lights. The Trail is a haunted corn field with endless frights! Buck up and put your game face on because flashlights are not permitted!
