Six Weeks of Halloween in Southwest Louisiana

It’s spooky season and southwest Louisiana has six weeks worth of spooktacular playdates to pack in! Locals and visitors can load up on terrifyingly tasty treats at the Downtown Candy Crawl, venture through the deepest, darkest woods of Lake Charles on the Lost Hollows haunted trail, picnic at one of our local parks and enjoy Movies Under the Stars, or travel back through time and explore the history of some of Lake Charles' most notable early settlers during the Living Cemetery tour. The last weekend of September is also the start of the fall festival season in Louisiana’s Playground. View the fêtes scheduled each weekend below.
