Halloween Events for Kids in Fife

It's almost October and that can only mean one thing! Halloween is right around the corner. The nights are getting darker and chiller and we'll soon be dressing up our kids to take them trick or treating. That's all fabulous but sometimes I like to take the kids to other events to help celebrate Halloween. In that case I've compiled a list for you lovely lot on Halloween events for the kids in Fife and the surrounding areas.

I hope you enjoy and if I've missed an event out which you think would suit then please do get in touch and let me know. I'll add it in below :)

Cairnie Fruit Farm - Cupar
Pick Your Own home-grown pumpkins. Cairnie have many different varieties for you to choose from and this is a great activity for the kids to get involved with before the actual carving or painting of their very own pumpkin. The PYOP tickets are now open to book online from the Cairnie website. PYOP starts from Saturday 9th October and has two slots available; 10am to 12.30pm or 1pm to 3.30pm.

Venture bravely along winding woodland paths to investigate reports of witches, weird happenings and black magic. Be prepared to scream and smile as you encounter some astounding sights on your journey through a magical twilight world. It’s silly, scary, socially distanced fun for all the family.

Pumpkin patch visits are our fave halloween tradition but some of these events sound such good fun. Spoilt for choice if you live in Fife. :)
