Boo! Did I get ya? My little scare seemed fitting to kick off my Halloween spirit. With exactly a week until this spooky holiday, I’ve been thinking about my plans for the night. I love to be out and about and a fun holiday is always the best excuse.

So to get you in the spirit, I thought I would provide my lovely readers with some #ThingsToDo on Halloween. Between holiday-themed events, dinners, and of course, to-do’s at a few Tanger centers, the options are endless!

Visit a Pumpkin Patch

Ever since I was little, this has been one of my favorite events during the Halloween season. The fam and I would day trip to a huge pumpkin patch and search for the perfect pumpkin. It may seem childish, but trust me, we’ve have had a blast every time we’ve been. It is the ultimate Saturday activity – and talk about an adorable photo opp. Score a look like this from your favorite Tanger brands!

Host a Potluck Dinner


Potlucks are perfect if you’re feeling a night at home. Grab your besties and have each person bring a dish to share. It’s super easy and definitely cost-effective.

Hint: bring a dish that allows you to prep pre-party, you’ll make it much easier on yourself without being worried about cooking last minute!

A quick meat and cheese platter is my go-to. If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to buy a great travel dish that looks fancy on a table too, try this Beige Marble Stand from the Williams-Sonoma Outlet for only $34.99 – with an additional 25% OFF Tanger Pink Card!

Weave Through A Corn Maze


For all my kids at heart, this one’s for you. Although I’ve never tried this activity, I’ve always heard great things. Throw on your running shoes and you’re off. The perfect way to blow off some stress before these holiday work hours kick in, am I right?

A Tanger Halloween

Last but not least, the happenings at Tanger centers near you. If you spend the holiday with nieces, nephews, or little kiddos of your own, these are sure winners.
