Halloween is a wonderful, spooky, extravagant time of the year, and it marks the shift from fall into winter. Whether you’re looking for a Halloween festival that’s scary, family-friendly, warm, or wintery, Vault Aviation and our On Demand private jet charters have got you covered!
Take a look at our top 7 Halloween Festivals in the US and try a different one each year!
Festival of the Dead | Salem, Massachusetts
Of course, Salem would top our list! Not only are witches and Salem synonymous in the US, but also this Massachusetts town celebrates Halloween for all 31 days of October, meaning you can come whenever it works with your schedule, not just on the final Thursday of the month.
Enjoy the fall colors, annual psychic fair, their witchcraft expo all month long, or, come for the annual Salem Witches’ Halloween Ball at the Hawthorne Hotel for a real treat in extravagance and voodoo. Flights are overbooked months in advance, but not private jet charters which can get you in and out seamlessly – without all the delays, lines, and hassles.
Halloween Horror Nights | Universal Studios Orlando, Florida
Like the warmth of the South, even in the fall? Then consider Universal Studios in Orlando this Halloween!
During October, Universal Studios is transformed into a giant haunted house with mazes based on horror movies or shows, as well as performances! If you are looking for a group event that’s still (very) scary – then Universal Studios is a great option.
Need a convenient way to get your family or group to Orlando? A private jet charter to Florida is the perfect way to enjoy your trip from start to finish, as well as spend quality time with your loved ones – even while in the air!
Halloween Carnaval | West Hollywood, California
If you prefer warmer weather for your Halloween haunts, then consider a private jet charter to Hollywood with Vault Aviation. We often fly to the Golden State, whether it’s Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento, or any other area.
But our favorite? Hollywood, of course! Almost half a million people visit Santa Monica Boulevard for West Hollywood’s Carnaval – making this the world’s largest Halloween street party. So, if you want a trip you’ll never forget (and might just return to year after year) then consider a private charter to Hollywood this October 31st!
Village Halloween Parade | New York City
The village in New York City is known for its parties all year round, but Halloween is a special time to be over-the-top, extravagant, and spooky! A private jet charter to New York City to see the paper-mache creations, puppets, and mile-long parade is the perfect way to celebrate your All Hallow’s Eve this year.
Need the best spot? Get there early with a seamless On Demand jet charter and post-up on 6th Avenue between Houston and 16th Street for the best views – and after the parade is finished? Enjoy the amazing nightlife of the Village, or head into central New York City for a night you’ll never forget.
Halloween in New Orleans, Louisiana
If you think New Orleans was only known for one party a year – you are sorely mistaken. New Orleans is one of the most party-happy cities in the US, and they never take the understated route. If you want to stay out all night, see some of the most amazing costumes, and enjoy ‘the most haunted city in America’ then New Orleans is the perfect Halloween destination for you.
The New Orleans Airport has had many difficulties and delays in recent months, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get to the Big Easy in style and convenience! Charter a private jet through Vault Aviation and we’ll help your vacation start long before you arrive!
Sleepy Hollow Halloween | Sleepy Hollow, New York
Don’t want to travel on the actual 31st, but still want that Halloween spirit? You’re in luck, as for all of October Sleepy Hollow celebrates with haunted hayrides, music, parade, fairs, and festivals to commemorate the Headless Horseman and Washington Irving.
See castles, cemeteries, and brush up on your history and classic reading as you spend a weekend or the whole month in this beautiful and exciting autumn town.
Halsted Halloween | Chicago, Illinois
If you want more of a carnival than a party, then Chicago is perfect for you, as their parade features fire-breathers, stilt-walkers, marching bands, and five categories of costume contests! Not to mention, Chicago has amazing views, shopping, eats, and nightlife.
If heading North doesn’t scare you, and if you aren’t worried about the biting winds of the Windy City the night November begins, then a private jet charter to Chicago is a great idea for your Halloween festivities this year.
But hurry, there’s just barely still time to get to these great cities with Vault Aviation before things get spooky!
