Trick or Treatup:
A Halloween Meetup Roundup

All Hallows’ Eve is upon us, and Meetups all over are getting into the spooky spirit. No matter what you’re into, chances are there’s a Halloween-happy Meetup near you celebrating this weekend. Throw on your costume, and get in on the fun. We rounded up some holiday highlights for inspiration.

Parenting Meetups from coast to coast will be celebrating Halloween with tots in tow. In Maryland, the Sykesville/Eldersburg Moms on the Move Meetup is attending story time at the local library. In California, the New Moms of West Hollywood Meetup is taking the fun outside, and hosting a Halloween Costume Party in the Park. Not to be outdone, Lyon, France’s International Families Network Meetup is joining in from abroad, hosting a Halloween Party at the local zoo.

Speaking of zoos, the The Anchorage Newbies Meetup will be trick or treating at the Alaska Zoo. And when it comes to pumpkin carving, there’s no shortage of choices. In southern California, the Active Women of Orange County will be having a pumpkin carving party above ground, and for the those looking to mix it up, the San Diego Hammerheads Meetup will be hosting underwater pumpkin carving.

Lots of Meetups will be taking advantage of the fall weather and moving the celebration outdoors. Several Meetups, including Plant City, Florida’s Simply Laidback Adventurers, Campers and Kayakers Meetup, and Georgia’s Adventurers Group, are hosting spooktacular overnight camping expeditions. In Minnesota, the Twin Cities Hiking Meetup is hosting a Halloween Hike in costume, and in Canada, the Toronto Archery Club is hosting a Halloween Costume and Shoot Meetup, where all participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite archery hero—suggestions include Katniss and Robin Hood.

For those looking to break a sweat, Halloween inspired fitness options abound. The Seattle Green Lake Running Group is starting the day with an early morning run, and costumes are encouraged. If running’s not your thing, give Halloween rock climbing a shot with California’s Riverside Rock Climbers Meetup. For those overseas, take note: the Mumbai Social Dancing Group will be celebrating with a Halloween Dance Party.

For the literary night owls out there, pay a visit to the South Arlington Creative Writing Social Club—they’re hosting an All Hallows Eve Write In that kicks off at midnight. And if you’re looking to network in costume, Arizona’s Scottsdale Eureka! Loft Meetup is hosting Taking the Scare out of StartUps: Finding Funding.

And finally, for those looking to celebrate with their canine companions, check out a dog Meetup near you. In Maryland, the Columbia Dogs on the Go Meetup is hosting a Halloween Walk around Centennial for pups in costume, and Oceanside, California’s North County Small Dogs Social Meetup will be hosting Yappy Howl-O-Ween, a dog costume party.
