Las Vegas welcomes wonderful weather and comes alive 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 party during what’s expected to be a long and action-packed Halloween weekend.

Halloween Fun Dominates Las Vegas in October

Come out and play. Las Vegas is one of the best cities in the world for Halloween parties. The spooky holiday falls on a Thursday this year, so call into work Friday and stay busy with a wild extended weekend. Some things to keep in mind — masks are considered a big no-no inside casinos. So plan ahead carefully. The weather is among the best in 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.) From the Strip to Downtown and throughout the surrounding residential areas, there are plenty of haunted attractions to enjoy. Check back to this page frequently to stay up to date on the most enticing options.

Where are the Best Halloween Parties?

  • Hit the Nightclubs for Halloween: Kaos, Hakkasan, Omnia, Jewel and other top nightclubs will be partying all weekend long with big-name headliners. Come dressed your best. Most clubs will be holding holiday costume contests with cash prizes at stake.
  • Fetish and Fantasy Halloween Ball: If you’re in search of the “sexiest place on Earth,” the Fetish and Fantasy Ball at the Hard Rock always delivers. Going 23 years strong, this Halloween extravaganza features performers, drinks and endless wild outfits on Saturday, October 26. Maxim Magazine once dubbed the party “one of five events to attend before you die.”
  • Fright Fest at the Fremont Street Experience: For most of October, the Fremont Street Experience transforms into Fright Fest for a monster of a party, complete with drink specials and live entertainment. Costumes are encouraged and the regular nightly Viva Vision video shows usually feature a Halloween theme.
  • Final Ride Hearse Car Show: If pop culture relics pique your interest, check out a parade of famous movie cars at the Final Ride Hearse Car Show at the El Cortez Hotel and Casino.
  • The LINQ: The outdoor promenade and High Roller observation wheel will be decked out with a Halloween theme in the days surrounding the holiday. Expect street performers, decorations and specials at participating bars and restaurants.

Where are the Best Haunted Attractions?

  • Mandalay Bay: The Shark Reef aquarium welcomes guests into their dark and eerie Haunted Shark Reef.
  • Freakling Bros. Trilogy of Terror: If you can handle three scary haunted attractions in one night, try Freaking Bros. Trilogy of Terror in the west valley on select dates September 26-October 31. After signing a consent form and deciding how much fear you can handle, you’ll make your way through three terrifying interactive haunted houses, including the R-rated Gates of Hell.
  • Fear The Walking Dead Survival:  This walk-through horror attraction is like an escape room, maze, video game, haunted house and motion simulator all in one. Inspired by AMC’s The Walking Dead, this wild ride has enough freaks to rival the cast of characters outside on the Fremont Street Experience.
  • Springs Preserve Haunted Harvest: Share the holiday spirit with the entire family at Springs Preserve with carnival games, live entertainment and a petting zoo among the Halloween activities. The Haunted Harvest is accessible for tricksters of all ages. This year’s 2019 edition runs Oct. 11-13, 18-20, 25-27, 5 p.m.-9 p.m.
  • HallOVeen at Opportunity Village: Ghosts and goblins of all ages are welcome to hop aboard a mini coaster, enchanted carousel and other rides at the family-friendly Magical Forest. Enjoy carnival-style snacks and take part in a round of mini golf. HallOVeen runs October 11-13, 18-31.

Free Things To Do in October

  • 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.
  • First Friday: First Friday is an art and food festival that takes place on the first Friday of every month in the Downtown Arts District. Live music, dancing and food trucks gather at this popular celebration of local culture. October’s event will be held on Friday, October 4, 6-10 p.m.
