The autumn colors, cooler weather, and fall festivities make Provo a spooktacular city! There are so many fun activities and events going on this time of year, I thought it would be fun to put together a list of Halloween events that your friends, neighbors, roommates, or the whole family can enjoy. I came up with nine awesome activities that are unique to Provo. Leave a comment and let me know what event you’re most excited for!

We’ve teamed up with some awesome local businesses to offer some amazing prizes! You could win a bike, an ultimate date package to Virtual Experience Arcade and more!

Grassroots is back again for the annual Halloween event! Coriolanus tells the story of a ruthless wartime hero, Caius Martius, navigating the powerful political machine of the early Roman Senate: calculating politicians with vaulting ambitions, egotistical patricians who care little for the needs of the people, and an outraged, hungry and violent populace all set under an atmosphere of constant fear and threats of war… there will be blood.
