It may not feel like fall yet here in the Lowcountry, but there’s no need to deprive yourself of pumpkin spice lattes, corn mazes, and other seasonal treats. There are plenty of fun ways to celebrate fall in and around Charleston. Read on to see some of our top picks for fall family activities in Charleston in 2019, and be sure to share with your friends. After all, the more the scarier!
Frightful Fun at Boone Hall
There are two don’t-miss events at Boone Hall this fall:
- Boone Hall Fright Nights, South Carolina’s largest multi-attraction haunted event. Prepare for scares because Boone Hall has three ways to scare the Skittles out of you! Between the house of horrors, haunted hayride, and zombie-infested playground, you’re guaranteed to catch a fright. Understandably, the attractions are not appropriate for kids under 12 years old.
- Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze, on the other hand, is a great option for families with younger kids! You can enjoy classic fall activities like picking your own pumpkin in the pumpkin patch, exploring the corn maze, or taking a hay ride; however, there are also a ton of other attractions to tire your kids out, including rock climbing, a giant spider web, a petting zoo, a giant slide, and unique play areas for the kids.
Charleston Pumpkin Patches
Of course, nothing says fall like a pumpkin patch photo op, so don’t settle for just one! Charleston Moms blog has shared a fantastic guide to local pumpkin patches in Charleston, as well as nearby areas including Summerville, North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and Moncks Corner. Some, like The Pumpkin Patch at Mistletoe Lane, also offer fall items like gourds, mums, and hay bales so you can bring some harvest style home with you.
A Costume Contest for Furry Friends
The Fall Festival at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre is going to the dogs! This family-friendly and pet-friendly event features a pet costume contest to benefit the Charleston Animal Society. There are several categories of prizes, so dress up your dog and get ready to strut your stuff for a good cause. In addition to the pet costume contest there will be live music, a photo booth, trick-or-treating, hula-hooping, arts and crafts activities for the kids, and a bouncy house. The event will also kick off the annual Canstruction event benefiting the Lowcountry Food Bank.
