Put on your favorite Halloween costume and grab your candy bucket, because it’s our favorite time of year once again! If you’re like us, Halloween is something you celebrate as soon as October 1st hits. In Broken Bow, many creepy things go bump in the night during this month-long celebration. A stay in one of our beautiful vacation rentals will allow you to experience the area’s best Halloween activities. But beware, Halloween in Broken Bow, Oklahoma is a ghoulishly fun time! 

Share Spooky Campfire Stories 

If you have ever been to summer camp or gathered around a campfire with friends and family, you’ve most likely shared stories that send shivers down your spine. During Halloween time in Broken Bow, we dare you to share your spookiest stories. Whether you are sharing stories from Alvin Schwartz’s “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” or a story you crafted on the spot, there’s no better Halloween activity. Make sure to sleep with a night light on because you never know what’s lurking around outdoors.  

Enjoy A Scary Movie Marathon 

Sometimes there is nothing better than a movie night complete with a delicious spread of snacks and drinks. During your upcoming visit to Broken Bow, we invite you to make yourself at home in one of our vacation rentals. Inside our properties are spacious sofas and large flat-screen televisions perfect for streaming scary movies all night long. If the weather allows it, crack open the windows and let the night breeze send a chill through the air. Be sure to pop popcorn so you have something to anxiously munch on during the movie. 

Have A Pumpkin Carving Contest  

There’s nothing that screams family fun more than carving a unique pumpkin while watching Hocus Pocus. This timeless activity is a great time to get creative and see who in the family has the best carving skills. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert carver, there are plenty of designs to take your pumpkins to the next level. For those looking to carve a scary pumpkin, a few designs to consider are spiders, witches, ghosts, and monsters full of teeth. But if you would rather carve a pumpkin on the lighter side, a few favorite designs are goofy smiles, Mickey Mouse, a moon, candy corn, and stars brightening up the night. Regardless of what design you choose, it will look great on your front porch! 

Go Trick-or-Treating 

Take your little ghouls, witches, and monsters trick-or-treating Halloween night in Broken Bow! This kid-favorite activity is the perfect way to explore Broken Bow while stirring up plenty of fun. Once you’ve trick-or-treated through the residential streets, be sure to head home and enjoy a few of your new favorite treats.

Candy isn’t the only Halloween treat you can munch on this season. There’s nothing quite as delicious as baking up a batch of spooky cookies. During your stay in one of our vacation rentals, enjoy our luxury kitchens fully equipped with everything you need to bake up a storm. Whether you’re looking to bake frosted spider cookies, ghoulish ghost brownies, or mini donuts decorated as pumpkins, you are sure to find a recipe to satisfy the entire family’s craving. Like we always like to say, families that bake together, stay together!
