Las Vegas welcomes wonderful weather in time for Halloween

Average temperature low and high: 65°- 82°

As October sets in, the Strip starts to slow down to a more comfortable pace. It’s a great time to find hotel deals & flight packages but keep in mind, some pools may be closed near the end of the month. Be ready to celebrate Halloween weekend with your best costume.

Halloween Fun Dominates Las Vegas in October

Come out and play. Las Vegas is one of the best cities in the world for celebrating Halloween. However, the coronavirus pandemic is limiting the amount of parties and haunted attractions we’ll see this year. That doesn’t mean people won’t dress up anyway and have fun in public spaces like The LINQ promenade and Fremont Street Experience. 

The spooky holiday falls on a Thursday this year, so call into work Friday and stay busy with an extended holiday weekend. Some things to keep in mind — traditional costumed masks are considered a big no-no inside casinos, although masks to cover the nose and mouth are required in light of COVID-19. The weather is among the best of the year in Sin City. So if you want to dress up in a skimpy outfit, go crazy. (Vegas can never get enough of sexy schoolgirls, sexy nurses, or sexy anything, really.) 

Check back frequently to stay up to date with Halloween events and activities in Las Vegas.

Things to do in October in Las Vegas

Get a First Look at the Hottest New Hotel in Las Vegas

Circa is one of the most anticipated new additions to Las Vegas in 2020. It won’t be complete until the end of the year, but the resort will begin welcoming its first guests on October 28. Only the first five floors will be open, but you’ll get a feel for what the new hotel is all about. Circa, the largest hotel on Fremont Street, will include a rooftop pool deck and two-level casino with the largest sports book in the world.

Vegas Pride Weekend

Las Vegas traditionally celebrates Pride Weekend with a Downtown parade and festival each October. Obviously, those plans are very much up in the air this year. At the very least, expect the celebration to adapt to a virtual format, perhaps with smaller, socially distant events throughout town.

Things To Do Outdoors in Las Vegas in October

October provides fantastic weather for visiting the Downtown Container Park, an outdoor park built from cargo shipping containers. Enjoy brunch on the rooftop deck of Downtown Terrace or grab a hot dog from Cheffini’s. There’s also a giant treehouse, lawn and stage for live performances and presentations.

If exploring the desert is more your speed, take a ride with Las Vegas ATV Tours. Enjoy the adrenaline of riding among sand dunes and navigating canyon trails without the overbearing heat from summer.

Recommended October Attractions

Stroll the Strip: If your luck runs out at the tables or you need to burn off calories from the buffet, one of the best ways to enjoy Vegas for free is walking up and down the Strip. The mild weather is perfect in October. Be sure to use our interactive Las Vegas Strip Map to find walk times, restaurants, bars and activities. Try starting at the Aria and explore the CityCenter complex, which also includes the Waldorf Astoria, Vdara and Shops at Crystals. From there, wander across Harmon Blvd. to see the exciting Cosmopolitan where you can try a pick-up game of pool on the third floor. Finally, get a good spot in front of the Bellagio and soak in a spectacular fountain show before heading inside to see the seasonal floral display at the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.

Downtown Arts District: Fremont Street gets the most attention Downtown, but make sure to also visit the up-and-coming Arts District. Enjoy dinner at Esther’s Kitchen, order Jamaican-themed cocktails in the courtyard of Jammyland or sip on wine at Garagiste. The neighborhood is also a hub for coffeehouses and breweries.
