Hilton Head Halloween Events: Pumpkins, Hayrides and Haunted Houses, Oh My!

Halloween is just around the corner, and if you’ll be in town before or on October 31, here’s a round-up of all the fun activities taking place on the island.

On October 25, the Island Rec Center will host its annual Pumpkin Patch from 4-8 p.m. at Shelter Cove Park. This is a great activity for kids. Admission is $10 per child ages 2-15 and adults get in free. The event includes pumpkin painting, a haunted hayride, a costume contest, carnival games, bouncy houses and live music. There are also prize giveaways throughout the event. All proceeds benefit the Hilton Head Island Recreation Association’s Scholarship Fund. Here’s a fun video that showcases the event:


Sea Pines hosts several Halloween events, as well. On October 25 & 26, they will have a Halloween Wagon Ride where kids can dress in costume, listen to stories and visit the pumpkin patch. At 7 p.m. on October 25, listen to ghost stories around a campfire at Sea Pines Forest Preserve while roasting marshmallows. Lastly, at Halloween on the Harbour, October 27 from 3:30-5 p.m., kids can participate in a costume parade, do crafts, enjoy cookies and cider, and then trick or treat around Harbour Town. For more information about any of the Sea Pines events, call 843-842-1979 or visit

Downtown Beaufort will host a trick or treat on October 24 from 4:30-6 p.m. Kids can visit Bay Street businesses for treats.

Pick out a pumpkin for your Hilton Head vacation rental at the Providence Pumpkin Patch at Providence Presbyterian Church, 171 Cordillo Parkway, now through October 31 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily.

At noon on October 26, head over to the Habersham Harvest Festival at Habersham Marketplace in Beaufort from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. This is a free event and it kicks off with a pet parade at 10 a.m. Next up is the pickle eating contest (nope, we’re not joking!), followed by the Marine Corps Band performing at noon. Other activities include a hayride, vintage Ferris wheel, live horse carousel, petting zoo and food vendors.

Love a good scare? Drive over the bridge to Bluffton for the Beaufort County Parks and Leisure Services Haunted House October 24-31. It’s $5 for 7 and older and free for kids 6 and younger. The haunted house opens at 7 p.m. each evening.
