Spooky Story Campfire. Pokemon Late Night Madness. Wicked in the Woods. Yes, there are lots of Halloween events scheduled throughout Baltimore County’s parks and nature centers. But don’t let that stop you from discovering other ways to have fun, adventure, exercise and maybe learn a thing or two. Get your fill of the Halloween spirit(s) and more. 

Come October, the colors of  Baltimore County's 200 parks are absolutely spectacular. Take the time to take in the colors. Pictured, the Baltimore County Center for Maryland Agriculture and Farm Park in Cockeysville.
