Halloween in Providence

The Halloween season is upon us, and Providence, RI is brimming with ways to scare up some fun during this most wicked time of year. Stroll along the illuminated winding paths at the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular and be amazed by the scores of intricately carved pumpkins. Take a walk on Providence's paranormal side on a Providence Ghost Tour

Providence’s native son H.P. Lovecraft was one of the most important writers of horror fiction. Visit his grave in Swan Point Cemetery and see what mysterious mementos his fans have left behind. Too spooky? Then get the ultimate costume inspiration by popping into the fun and fantastic world of the Big Nazo Puppet Lab. Need a libation after all that inspiration? Try some local pumpkin-inspired ales and cocktails at one of the city's local haunts

Book an overnight at one of the city’s fabulous hotels, and curate a Halloween getaway that is uniquely yours. Pick your wicked Providence today.
