If you've ever heard of Western New York chances are you've heard of our breathtaking scenery, especially during the autumn months. BUT, have you heard of all the fun and festive events we have to offer during All Hallows Eve?! We suggest paying us a visit, you'd certainly be in for a treat.
If spooky, scary, eerie is your choice for Halloween celebrations, the staff here at the Reikart House recommends the Haunted Hayrides at Becker Farms. Offered several dates during October, Becker Farms pulls out all the stops for their infamous Haunted Hayride. Enjoy a night of strange happenings and eerie encounters as you ride through the 340-acre fruit and vegetable farm. Single tickets are $10.
Potions and poisons more your speed? Then head over to The Crawling Dead: Halloween Bar Crawl held on October 27th. Get into the Halloween spirit at some of the best bars and restaurants on Hertel Ave (which is one of the most popular watering hole spots, found in North Buffalo). Enjoy drink specials, food, giveaways, and fun surprises all night long. Tickets are $10 presale and $15 at the door.
Bringing the family along for some Halloween fun? You can't miss The Great Pumpkin Farm! The best place to start a family tradition, the farm is home to one of the largest pumpkin patches found in Western New York and offers everything from hay rides to a pie eating contest. Don't forget to stop by the Pumpkin Palace, which is home to freshly baked desserts (you can't come to WNY without snagging some sponge candy)!
If all this talk of fall festivities has you brainstorming for a costume to pack, have no fear for the Reikart House staff is here! We can't help but be inspired by our namesakes, Frank and Dolly Reikart, who were vaudeville performers in the early 1900s. Get in the trick-or-treat mood by turning into any one of these Roaring Twenties characters:
a dancer in a fringed flapper dress
a vintage French circus clown
a silent film actor
a mobster like Al Capone
The perfect end to your Halloween adventures? Warming up by the fire with a classic cocktail in our Fireside Lounge, or enjoying regional cuisine made with local ingredients in our Parlor Dining Room. Pack your favorite costume and book one of our hotel packages for the best deals this Halloween season!
