  1. If, for you, Halloween is more about booze than boos, head to Saturday’s Halloween Bar Crawl. Dress up and drink downtown after a kickoff party at Club Scene. Tickets include a souvenir cup, admission to bars, and events during the crawl. October 27, 2–10 p.m., OTR and The Banks,
  2. Recently lauded as the “Best Theme Park Halloween Event in the Country” by USA Today (a niche to be sure, but still impressive) Kings Island’s Halloween Haunt pulls out all the stops when spooking spectators. With attractions for the young, old, and everyone in between, this mix of thrills and chills is sure to entertain. Through October 27, 6300 Kings Island Dr., Mason, (513) 754-5700,
  3. Vinoklet Winery’s Howl-O-Wine! combines two beloved things: dogs and wine. Sip some of the winery’s finest while watching your furry BFF win the costume contest or a doggie game. October 21, 1–5 p.m., 11069 Colerain Ave., Colerain, (513) 385-9309,
  4. Celebrate the season at Southgate House Revival’s Halloween “Stranger Eighties” Masquerade. Festive frivolity abounds with 80’s music, refreshments, live bands, and, of course, costumes. October 20, 8 p.m., (859) 431-2201,
  5. Rhinegeist’s annual Halloween Party makes perfect use of their cavernous tap room and brewery with a DJ and one of the best costume contests in the city. October 26, 8 p.m.–2 a.m., 1910 Elm St., (513) 381-1367,
