There is plenty to do near Hartford for those in Middletown apartments hoping to get in on the Halloween spirit. Here’s a round-up of some of the best ways to enjoy the holiday while staying safe.
Head Outdoors for a Pet Parade

Spooky sights will thrill you at every corner as you explore the 152-acre estate, featuring a peek-a-boo view of a haunted house set up in the Pump Station. Get you tickets early, as there are limited tickets with timed entrance.
Brews for the End of October
The Niantic Public House and Brewery in East Lyme is offering a fun-filled Halloween party at The House. Buy tickets ahead of time, as walk-ins won’t be let in to accommodate social distancing guidelines. The first pint comes with the ticket. Must be 21 or accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Host a Virtual Party at Home
If what you’re missing most is a happening party, break out the laptop and set up a zoom invite to go out to your friends. You can send out a playlist and even wear costumes. Or keep it toned down for simpler times, light a few candles, open a glass of wine and enjoy the Saturday evening with friends while keeping safely distant.
