In a year that’s been plenty scary already, many Atlanta community members are planning to play it safe this season. The CDC has warned against traditional trick-or-treating, haunted houses, and other close-contact Halloween events this year, but there are other ways you can reconnect with some of the holiday pastimes you love without compromising the wellbeing of you and your loved ones. Check out some recommendations in our list of Halloween 2020 virtual events, haunted houses, and parades in Atlanta, GA.

The annual Halloween season tour features actors bringing to life the stories of those who rest in the famed Oakland Cemetery. You can purchase the Capturing the Spirit of Oakland 2020 film online.
Once named one of Travel Channel’s top 10 Halloween events in the U.S., the annual Little Five Points Halloween Festival and Parade has been modified into a virtual parade with the tagline “It may be a ghost town but we are all still here in spirit.” The Little 5 Points Halloween Festival & Parade Facebook page will be streaming the event on October 17th at 4:00 pm.
