Every October the Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania feels different somehow. It still maintains the family-friendly atmosphere it’s known for, but something seems to have taken over some of its most popular attractions - museums, caverns, resorts, even the library!

From kid-friendly costume parties to frights that are not for the faint of heart, Huntingdon County promises visitors a Halloween they won’t forget!

Ghosts & Goblins 
at Lincoln Caverns & Whisper Rocks

In its 34th year, this spooky Halloween event has something for people in all age groups. The daytime tours are catered more to families with younger children, while nighttime visitors are in for a fright. Just when you think it’s okay to relax, something’s lurking just around the corner in the underground cavern. The 90-minute experience features a tour of the cave, a trek through some seriously spooky woods and a haunted hayride!

Each year the attraction features a different theme, which is not revealed until September.

October 6-7, 13-14, 20-21 and 27-28
Tickets: range from $11.48 to $19.98, advanced ticket sales only for evening tours. Daytime tickets available online or at the door. See website for details.
