Read on for the best Halloween events in Miami for the whole family.

Don your favorite costumes and get ready to trick-or-treat around Miami with these fun, family-friendly Halloween celebrations.

Halloween on Lincoln Road

For a classic Miami Halloween celebration, come out to South Beach’s Lincoln Road on Halloween night when the pedestrian promenade becomes a catwalk for some of the most outrageous and creative Halloween costumes you’ve ever seen. Always a hot spot for people watching, Lincoln Road is a true feast for the eyes on Halloween. Come out with the whole family dressed in your best costume and join the walking parade. You can always stop for a bite to eat at one of the sidewalk cafes to rest and refuel. For families, it’s a good idea to come early as the party grows rowdy later in the night.

Not So Scary Family Halloween Bash at Miami Children’s Museum

Come on out to the Miami Children’s Museum on October 14 with the whole family for their annual Not So Scary Family Halloween Bash. You’ll trick or treat across the museum’s 17 galleries, including the new exhibit Pirate Island, which features an exclusive phantom experience. Come dressed in your Halloween costume, enjoy a live theater performance and have fun decorating mini pumpkins to take home.

Monster Splash at Miami Seaquarium

Mark your calendar for October 26 through 28 and come out to the Miami Seaquarium for their annual Monster Splash when ghosts and goblins haunt the facilities. You’ll enjoy Halloween-themed animal shows, Flipper’s Dance Party, trick-or-treating and special rides and inflatable attractions. You’ll also enjoy hands-on activities like creating your own scarecrow and hiking through a pumpkin patch. Get dressed up and have a ball!

Zoo Boo at Zoo Miami

Come out to Zoo Miami on October 27 and 28 for their annual Zoo Boo festivities. This massive trick-or-treating event caters to families with children under the age of 12. Come out to the zoo in costume and view the wild animals as they get their Halloween treats. You’ll enjoy costume contests, Halloween crafts and special performances presented by Actor’s Playhouse featuring song and dance numbers from hit movie musicals La La Land and The Greatest Showman.

House of Horror Haunted Carnival

Held annually at the Miami International Mall, the House of Horror Haunted Carnival is South Florida’s largest haunted house experience. Held September 27 through November 3, the House of Horror is divided into three haunted attractions. Blossom Ln. is home to an abandoned house standing in shambles after a tragic fire, and the address is 666—enter if you dare! Area 13 is a maximum security clearance facility and you’ve been granted access to catch a glimpse of the cause of all the deaths and supernatural encounters. You can also participate in the Scare X Studio interactive circus experience where you become the star of the show. In addition to the haunted attractions, you’ll also enjoy unlimited carnival rides, games and treats from food vendors all night long.

Howl-o-Ween at Pinecrest Gardens

Come out to Pinecrest Gardens on October 28 and bring your four-legged friend for their annual Howl-o-Ween pet party.

It promises to be a howling good time for all!
