Welcome to Miami, home to the best Halloween parties in Florida – from haunted houses in scary swamps to zombie raves at frightening fiestas. Throughout October, you’ll find the House of Horror Haunted Carnival at the Miami International Mall. This is a thrilling place to be during Halloween, with 30 rooms of evil antics, terrifying characters and some fantastic carnival rides too. Then, over the weekend of 21 to 23 October, head south to the Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch Festival where you’ll find carved and decorated pumpkins, corn mazes, a scarecrow village, and a kids’ carnival – perfect for families looking for a few scares. At the end of the month on 29 October, the real parties begin, for 30 years the Vizcaya Halloween Sundowner at the Vizcaya Museum, has been the one to watch. This year the theme is spooky Prohibition-era antics – so think gangsters and molls, with a zombie twist.
