Halloween Happenings in Mystic 2022

Halloween is right around the corner! By now the kids have their costumes ready to go, and are bursting with excitement! If you’re looking for some fun, family friendly Halloween events in Mystic, we have all the details here!

Jack-o-Lantern Walk 

Mystic Seaport’s annual Jack-o-Lantern Walk is back! This year, the event is being held October 25th through the 29th, from 5:30-8:30.  Stroll along some of the darker, often overlooked portions of the museum property and enjoy the spectacle of several hundred lit jack-o-lanterns on display! Then play

a lawn game, enjoy some live music, warm up by a roaring fire, create a fall-themed craft, or take a spooky guided tour in which you learn about the darker side of life in a 19th century seaport town. Wear your favorite family-friendly costume and get in the Halloween spirit! Tickets are available now!

Mystic Halloween Parade

The Mystic Halloween Parade & Trick or Treat is back for 2022! Join us on Sunday, October 30 from 1:00-3:00pm. The parade will kick off at 1:00 at Pizzetta on Water St. and ends at the Mystic Fire Department. After the parade, kids are invited to stay at Mystic Firehouse to enjoy crafts, mummy wrapping, snacks and a community Trunk or Treat! This is truly a community event with the Mystic Fire Department, the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce, Stonington Police, the Groton police, and the Groton and Stonington High School communities all pitching in.
