• Halloween Fun and Events in Loudoun County

        We at Ask Gina & Company, your friendly Northern Virginia realtors, are big fans of Halloween. Playing dress up, getting up to your elbows in pumpkin guts, and ingesting copious amounts of candy- what’s not to love?! Whether you enjoy being so scared that you pee your pants, or simply appreciate pumpkins and hayrides, Loudoun County has a host of activities to fulfill your Halloween needs. While I love the Halloween spirit and mayhem, I do not like the undead, things jumping out at me, or anything with more than four legs. However, Shocktober in Leesburg has all of that and more and you are able to experience it for yourself every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in October, as well as November 1st and 2nd. Sunday, October 13th is even Student Day so head to their website, http://www.shocktober.org/ and enter promo code STUDENT for five dollars off an exploration of the manor! Shocktober’s Paxton Manor is more than just an ominous house enhanced to frighten Halloween enthusiasts.  Real, paranormal activity has been witnessed in the house, whose foundation rests above creepy caverns and an underground lake. Visitors can also choose to experience the, anything but fun, Fun House, and/or a solo experience referred to as The Last Ride, where those brave enough are lay in a coffin that is lowered into the ground. Activities range from $5 to $20.

        Less likely to give you a heart attack, the Fall Pumpkin Harvest Festival at Great Country Farms  is another inexpensive Loudoun County autumn activity. From pig races to cider doughnuts to a 2.5 acre corn maze, Bluemont’s Great Country Farms, knows how to satisfy your craving for fall family fun. An array of different size, shape, and color pumpkins can be purchased for 59 cents a pound, including a pink “Porcelain Doll” pumpkin whose proceeds go to support Breast Cancer Research. Great Country Farms is open seven days a week and holds additional activities on weekends and holidays so be sure to check out their website!
