October 14th, 2018 by Abigail Field

Halloween on the North Fork is packed with spooky fun the Weekend of October 26, 27 and 28. Find a costume dance party Friday and Saturday nights. Explore a haunted corn maze by day at Krupski Farms, or by night at Harbes Orchard. Cruise to haunted “Bug” Lighthouse and learn all about its ghosts as you explore their home.

Enjoy classic country fun at the Oysterponds Historical Society Fall festival, meander among the scarecrows at the Southold Historical Society, or join the Halloween parade in costume in Greenport. For a special treat that’s not Halloween-ish, enjoy a concert by Billy Joel cover band Cold Spring Harbor in Greenport Saturday night. So many options, so little time.

Halloween Costume Parties

Friday night the party is in Greenport, at First and South. Saturday head to American Beech, Greenport Harbor Brewing or Pace’s Dockside for costume fun.

First and South’s party kicks off at 6 pm, with wine and cheese by McCall Wines and Gourmet Foods International, music by DJ Henry, and a costume contest. The lucky winner–announced at 11 pm–wins a custom beach cruiser bike!

Greenport Harbor Brewing‘s Peconic beer garden hosts a party features a costume contest, DJ, and “spooky restaurant specials”, starting at 7 pm and running until 11 pm.

American Beech’s party is post-dinner dance party, running 9 pm to midnight, with lots of prizes for great costumes. Enjoy appetizers, drinks and DJ Angelica Morrow.

Pace’s Dockside’s party is the only one offering live music–That Motown Band. There’s also a costume contest, and food and drink specials.

Country Halloween: Costume Parade and Spooky Corn Mazes

Bring your kids to Greenport for the annual March of the Goblins and Hounds, which steps off at 10 am. Parade from Floyd Memorial Library to the carousel at Mitchell Park, where kids of all ages enjoy a haunted maze, pumpkin painting, free carousel ride for kids, an agility course for dogs, and more.

A North Fork Halloween isn’t complete without a corn maze. Krupski’s Farms is famous for its spooky corn maze and haunted barn. It’s a good thing the farm is only open 9 am to 6 pm–it would take a very brave person to explore after dark. While you’re there shop the farm stand for freshly grown treats and pose with the guillotine…

Brave enough to want to wander amid the stalks after dark? Head to Harbes Orchard for a night time spooky corn maze Friday the 26th and Saturday the 27th.  Because the maze can be very dark and hard to navigate you must have a flashlight or other light source. When you’re through, enjoy a fresh picked apple treat at their Apple Shack.

More Country Halloween: Haunted Lighthouse and Fall Festival

The East End Seaport Museum is running their final two cruises of the year to Long Beach Bar “Bug” Lighthouse on Saturday from 4-6 pm and Sunday from noon-2 pm. Saturday’s cruise is a special haunted tour featuring paranormal researchers who have investigated the lighthouse’s ghosts. Beyond the spooky dimension, the trip is very special because you get to go inside the lighthouse and explore it properly. Sunday lacks the paranormal researches, but still features the inside-the-lighthouse tour.

The Oysterponds Historical Society offers classic country fun with its annual fall festival. Look for spooky stories, a cider press, games, crafts, live music, a costume parade and trick-or-treating.

For quick and casual fun, check out the Southold Historical Society’s Scarecrow Contest. Simply stroll their beautiful grounds exploring the spooky creations.

In short, the North Fork is *the* place for Halloween fun, whether you bring the kids or not. Book your Shorecrest stay now, so you don’t miss out!
