Oktoberfest Beer Tour

Sure, a St. Augustine fall is about the spooky frights and the real ghost tales, but it’s more about good-old drinking, fabulous costumes, and wine for some. The Oktoberfest Beer Tours launch from downtown St. Augustine in October. These special event tours include wine and beer across two different types of tour adventures. You can take a haunted walking tour to some authentic local haunts or hop aboard a carriage ride. Either will give you an immediate insight into the town’s extensive ghost history while allowing you to knock that spooky edge off.

Tickets are $49 per person.

Creatures of the Night

The Alligator Farm is one of the most popular attractions in St. Augustine. Fortunately, the farm brings out your wild side for a family-friendly romp through the gardens every October. From October 26th to October 28th, you and the whole family can come on out for some spooky-themed wildlife encounters. The team brings out some special weekend-only treats, allowing visitors of all ages to get hands-on. Ever wanted to see a tarantula up close? How about in your hands?

Visitors can check out the critter encounters, collect creature treats in the fun scavenger hunt around the park, and catch some special candy goodies. It is a fantastic family-friendly event that everyone can find a little something in.

Make sure you stay until 7:15 for an evening alligator feeding. Adults are only $10, and children 2 to 11 are $8.

Corn Maze at Sykes Family Farms

Do you love corn mazes? Don’t miss out on the special corn maze event at Sykes Family Farms for October. Head on over to Elkton, about 15 miles outside of town, for one of the most acclaimed corn mazes in the state.

The maze is open from October 6th to November 4th. You can enter the maze on Fridays from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the season.

The EstuScary Festival

For just two nights, October 26th and October 27th, guests can stay in the lovely open areas with the food trucks, candy handlers, and kids’ games. But, anyone looking to get a little scared can brave the haunted trails.

The EstuScary Festival is a fun event with appropriate activities for all ages. Attending is free, but a walk down the haunted trail is $10 per person. It’s an eerie good time with the whole group. Watch that one family member lose their mind when you tell them the candy is over this way, past the dark trees.
