Have a Spooky Good Time in Carlsbad for the Halloween Season
The countdown to Halloween is on!
From picking pumpkins and costume contests to trick-or-treating and a haunted corn maze, Halloween is spook-tacular in Carlsbad. There’s something for everyone!
Pumpkins, Family Fun and a Haunted Corn Maze at the Carlsbad Strawberry Company
Known as a longtime local tradition, the Carlsbad Strawberry Company has been the place to go to get your fill of fall fun. This year, the tradition continues with a pumpkin patch, tractor rides, a family-friendly corn maze, a sheep and goat petting area, games and food that the entire family can enjoy. The Pumpkin Patch is open from 9am - 6pm daily through Sunday, November 6.
But, that’s not all. The Carlsbad Strawberry Company has teamed up with the Agua Hedionda Lagoon to create a hair raising adventure that's not for the faint of heart. The Haunted Corn Maze is open from 7pm-10pm on Fridays and Saturdays in October. Teenagers and adults can wander through the maze with a warning - the wrong turn can result in a terrifying turn of events. Scary surprises are lurking around every corner to make you jump. A portion of your admission goes to educating the future Lagoon Stewards at the Agua Hedionda Lagoon.
The Carlsbad Strawberry Company is at 1050 Cannon Road in Carlsbad.
