Children can visit treat stations throughout the Zoo, take a snapshot with one of the Zoo's animals and wander through the merry, not scary Hay Maze and Boo Den. General Zoo admission applies.

This year's Zombie Fest will take place at the Main Library, 7711 Goodwood Blvd., on Saturday Oct. 23, from 3-5 p.m. Zombie Fest 2010 will coincide with the "Thrill the World" event, when everyone will be dancing the "Thriller" dance! There will be games, food and fun for all you undead. Bring a non-perishable food item (canned goods, boxed or bagged) to feed the hungry. Donated items will go to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. For more information, call 225-231-3770.

Bring the family to enjoy the 2nd Annual Pumpkin Patch at the St. James Welcome Center thru Oct. 30 10 a.m. -5 p.m. While at the Pumpkin Patch, visitors can purchase pumpkins and gourds of all shapes and sizes, enjoy a hay ride, walk through a haunted house, explore a nature trail and take pictures under a decorated gazebo!

The 13th Gate, one of America's top rated haunted attractions, invites fear lovers to the haunting of their lives with over 100 professional actors, 12 special effects makeup and airbrush artists and many costume specialists working together to bring the terrifying show to life each night. The 13th Gate will open Sept. 23- Oct. 16 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, and Oct. 21-31 every night. Also check out the Flashlight Fright nights Nov. 5- 6.

The Maize at Cajun Country Corn, located northeast of Baton Rouge in Pine Grove, offers both haunted and non-haunted trails. The second half of the maze will be haunted every weekend in October and the entire week prior to Halloween, beginning at dusk. Click HERE for maze schedules.

The "Ghost of the Castle" exhibit, located in the Old State Capitol, provides a new perspective while recounting the history of the "Castle on the River." Initially spooky, a little witty, and overall entertaining, this new exhibit is a great addition to any Halloween itinerary. Click HERE for further information about the Sarah Morgan Exhibit and Louisiana's Old State Capitol.

The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville is hailed as one of the most haunted homes in the nation. The plantation offers Mystery Tours on Friday & Saturday evenings at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. Reservations are recommended, so gather a group if you're brave enough to chance a run-in with a real ghost.
