It’s fall again, and the temperature lowers at its own pace here in Phoenix. But while the heat slowly dissipates, Phoenicians still look for fun things to do. Thankfully, there’s always something to do in Phoenix: whether it’s to enjoy the arts, to enjoy local eats, or even just to blow off some steam. Here are 4 fall and halloween events you can partake in while in Phoenix this October!
Phoenix, as old a town as it is, has many secrets. Some of those secrets are hideous enough to take to the grave. But luckily, a local raconteur and history buff is willing to walk you through some of the most haunted places in downtown Phoenix and share that hidden side of history! Best of all, this tour is socially distanced, as all good events this year should be!
For pub crawlers who like a little ceremony, there’s the Urban Ale Trail Week, which annually offers breweries and restaurants of downtown Phoenix the chance to share their offerings with the people of Arizona. If you go to this event in Phoenix, be sure to buy the indestructible pint glass so that you can gulp your brews on the go. Also, don’t forget that each restaurant taking part will have different specials related to the event; we’re not saying you have to eat them all, but you’ll probably be glad if you do!
Look at the first two events, and put them together: what do you get? You get the Haunted Pub Tour, where you and a buddy (tickets are two-person minimum) have the chance to see the sites of some grisly deaths — as well as some spiritual hotspots — that capture the “spirit” of the Wild West. You can bring your own canned beverages to this Halloween event in Phoenix, (no glass or open containers allowed) and join the tour rain or shine. Take your chance to “toast with a ghost”!
