Las Vegas Halloween Events 2023
During Las Vegas Halloween in 2023 the city will turn into a large haunted graveyard, catch zombie virus and bat infestation; hotels will crackle in fire and ooze blood, all the vampires that sleep during the year will come out to lurk in the dark and asylums will open their doors to new patients....
Just kidding! Vegas is never more alive than during the scariest period of the year! There are plenty of things to do, haunted houses, haunted tours, events and parties that take place every Halloween weekend in Las Vegas, and October 2023 is no exception. All night clubs and all hotels will be celebrating. As the city is getting ready for Halloween, I will be adding more attractions, parties, events and things to do during the Halloween weekend in Vegas. The city starts celebrating Halloween in the end of September - you don't need to wait for October 31 to get scared!
Be afraid...be very afraid...
