Top 3 Isle of Palms Halloween Festivities  

1. Halloween Carnival 

The Isle of Palms Halloween Carnival is the spookiest celebration on the island! This annual Isle of Palms event takes place every year on Halloween Day. It’s a popular kid-friendly activity on Isle of Palms thanks to its events that are the perfect blend of fun and spooky. Enjoy face painting, a costume contest, Halloween-themed games, and, of course, candy!  

Details about the 2020 Halloween Carnival set to take place on Saturday, October 31, haven’t been released yet, as event coordinators are working hard to ensure a fun event that’s also socially distanced and safe for all attendees and workers.  

2. Decorated Homes 

You can tell it’s Halloween season simply by driving through the Island, as many of the homes on Isle of Palms are decorated for the occasion! Orange lights are strung in the streets, inflatable ghouls are perched atop yards, and you can see pumpkins on almost every doorstep.  

We recommend picking up a pumpkin and some carving supplies before you arrive, so you can decorate your rental home in the spirit of Halloween! The Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch is a great place to pick your perfect gourd. This patch is open from October 1-31 and features a pumpkin patch as well as many great activities for children!
