Redlands Halloween Guide (2023)

Kids Holiday Shopping & Activities Last updated

From spooky hauntings to thrilling Halloween light shows and the best trick-or-treating around, discover why a Redlands Halloween is a can’t-miss holiday!

Maybe it’s the costumes. Maybe it's the candy. Maybe it’s the ‘ghosts.’ For us, it’s all the above and more that makes Halloween in Redlands one of our favorite holidays. 

What to Do in Redlands This Halloween

Visit the 12 Most Haunted Places in Redlands

Next to citrus trees, Redlands is best known for its paranormal activity. Don’t let our town’s charm fool you. Our enclave tucked in the Catalina Foothills is home to several lingering spirits (or so the legends go). Discover the 12 most haunted places in Redlands —including two new accounts just recently added!

Take a Self-Guided Haunted House Tour

Want to keep your spooky encounters to just haunted houses? We’ve rounded up Redlands’ best. Please be respectful while you explore.

Losing a pet is never easy. They’re part of the family, especially during the holidays. Recently the About Redlands team had to say goodbye to one of our own, who particularly loved Halloween. Join us in celebrating your fur babies who are no longer with you by bringing a 4-by-6 photo to the Redlands Visitors Center and adding it to our Pet Ofrenda this Halloween. Write a message on our Memorial Wall honoring those you have lost.

Olive Avenue Halloween Extravaganza
