Trick-or-Treat at Publix

  •  Most local Publix stores host a trick-or-treating event on Halloween where your child can wear a costume and walk through the store collecting candy and treats from the different departments of the grocery store. This event is great for small children since it is free, the amount of candy is manageable, and the event isn’t scary. Check your local Publix to see if they are participating and what times trick-or-treating is available.

I’ve never been to the Autumn Harvest, but it looks like a lot of fun. There is a costume contest at 8 am. Your kids can treat or treat at the vendor booths and carry free “ghost balloons” (white helium balloons with faces on them). And, get this, the members of the 501st Troop will be mingling with their authentic Star Wars costumes. (You didn’t know that we had 501st Troop in town?)

Local pumpkin patches and apple orchards

Fischer’s Orchard (Greer, SC) – Family day on Saturday includes a wagon ride, petting zoo, and hayride and is only $3.50 per person.  I have been to Fischer’s, and I highly recommend it for families with small children. They also have picnic tables, so it is an easy place to bring a lunch.

Mini Miracles Pumpkin Patch (Taylors, SC) – hayrides, barn animals, mazes, bounce house, and pumpkins. Susan has been to this pumpkin patch and recommends it. 

Nivens Apple Farm (Moore, SC) – pick-your-own apple orchard, pumpkin patch, hayrides, corn maze, farm animals, gem mine, pedal car, and farm store.

Strawberry Hill, USA (West Chesnee, SC) - pumpkin patch, hayrides, and corn maze 

Stewart Farms (Laurens, SC) – corn maze, and a Big Boo event on Saturday evenings in October

Denver Downs Farm (Anderson, SC) – pumpkin patch, hayrides, corn maze, zip-line, and more

Sky Top Orchard (Flat Rock, NC) – pick-your-own apple orchard, hayrides, play ground and concessions

Grandad’s Apples (Edneyville, NC towards Chimney Rock) – corn maze, barn animals, and cow train

Justus Orchard (Hendersonville, NC) – pick-your-own apples and pumpkins. It looks like they have animals and a play ground too. We actually used to live very close to Justus Orchard!

If you know of any Halloween or fall events for kids in the Greenville area that I missed, leave a comment! I will be adding to this list over the next couple of days.

    We have been to Nivens Apple Farm in Moore, SC and love it. They have hayrides, small petting zoo, etc. We have also been to Stewart Farms in Enoree. They have a huge corn maze, pumpkin patch, wagon rides, etc. I have a friend who really likes Justus Orchard in Hendersonville, NC.

    • says

      Thanks Erin. I will add all of these! We actually used to live almost right beside Justus Orchard, but we never visited it (it was before kids). That whole area of Hendersonville is very nice.

    I am trying to decide the best place to take my 2 year old for Halloween this year. We don’t really want to go door to door so we are looking for a non-scary event. From those whom have been before are there usually scary costumes at Enchanted Tracks? I am looking for more of a fun, toddler friendly event.

    • says

      I have not been to Enchanted Tracks, but all the photos I saw looked very non-scary. The costumed adults are dressed like storybook characters and the event is designed for small kids. I think that it would be a great choice with the train rides, etc. Boo in the Zoo is non-scary as well, and I’ve taken a toddler before and had a great time.
