In the same way that Oxford, Ohio is the perfect place to enjoy autumn, it's also the perfect place for all things Halloween. Anytime you have a place with as much history as Oxford there's bound to be some chilling stories to tell. (I hear Peabody Hall on Western Campus is haunted. Anyone care to confirm?)
This year we are getting back to all Halloween events as usual, like Uptown Trick or Treat OPRD Style and Lions Club Parade!
Below we're listing some of the ways you can experience Halloween all month long in Oxford, OH. This way you'll spend less time searching for events and more time getting your costume ready. Otherwise, you'll end up like a friend of mine who once procrastinated and ended up buying a child's size emoji costume at the last minute out of sheer desperation.
(That friend was Taylor in 2019 and we are still laughing about it!)
Check back because we'll keep updating this post as we learn about more Halloween-y things throughout town.
