About

You've found the home for The Halloween Guide for Central Florida and all things Fall fun!

I love Halloween and am always looking for new and fun things to do during the Halloween season. I have collected a variety of events to share with you. Many are here in Orlando but others are easily driveable from Orlando and totally worth checking out!

Currently the events are listed by starting date. Eventually I hope to have a searching tool to look at events by name as well as date. Stay tuned!

Here are some tips for attending events:
• Always check the main website for ticketing information, cost, dates and times as well as costume information and their official dos and don’ts for the event.
• Be early, have your tickets purchased if available.
• Let the event know you found them on Halloween Guide Orlando!

If you host a public Halloween/Fall event that we don't have listed or know of a great event that we don’t have it listed, or additional information is needed or needs to be updated about an event we do have listed, feel free to email info@halloweenguideorlando.com and we’ll add it to our page!

And fear not! I'll continue to list events that I think the Halloween lover will enjoy to keep you happy year round!

Let’s connect! Find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

About the movie: 

It’s the eve of Christmas in northern Finland, and an ‘archeological’ dig has just unearthed the real Santa Claus. But this particular Santa isn’t the one you want coming to town. When the local children begin mysteriously disappearing, young Pietari and his father Rauno, a reindeer hunter by trade, capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the misguided leader of the multinational corporation sponsoring the dig. Santa’s elves, however, will stop at nothing to free their fearless leader from captivity. What ensues is a wildly humorous nightmare – a fantastically bizarre polemic on modern day morality.
