Several popular Halloween events are hosted locally this month, offering residents an opportunity to stay in the Santa Clarita Valley this Halloween season.

Pumpkin ranches, mystical haunted locations and a spooky theme park will make Santa Clarita the perfect destination for ghoulish delights this fall.

Every weekend in October, the Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park transforms into Fright Fest, a terrifying scream park for some, yet tame enough for the entire family.

Guests wander through haunted mazes, watch spooky live shows and experience roller coasters in the dark, including the infamous Colossus, which will run backwards in honor of the spooky event.

Kids can participate in craft areas, costume contests, and even roam areas for trick-or-treating. Visit for more Fright Fest information.

One of the most adored fall family traditions in the SCV is the Halloween Pumpkin Festival at Lombardi Ranch in Saugus.

Complete with music and face painting, this local gem offers fall harvest entertainment for kids of all ages. Pick the perfect pumpkin, enjoy a train ride through the ranch, enjoy face painting, or take a stroll through the incredible corn maze featuring "Scarecrow Alley."

For a full calendar of events happening at Lombardi Ranch throughout the fall season, visit or call (661) 296-8697.

On Friday and Saturday nights in October, the Heritage Haunt's Nightmares of Newhall offers tours through the historic property turned haunted house, where visitors witness paranormal activity first-hand.

This hair-raising event boasts two large scare zones, a haunted pirate ship, a haunted hay ride, and four new decorated homes. Visit or call (661) 254-1275 for additional details.

Families won't want to miss the annual Haunted Jailhouse and Halloween Carnival hosted by the Santa Clarita Valley Sherriff's Station on Sunday, Oct. 25.

This Santa Clarita tradition includes a haunted jail tour, game booths, food, clowns and a costume contest. For additional details, visit or call (661) 799-5804.
