"Deadweird" aka Deadwood, South Dakota
Halloween in DeadwoodIt may be a small community, but the residents of this historic old west town go all out when it comes to celebrating Halloween. What started out as "Deadweird" about fourteen years ago as a holiday program at the local school has now grown to become a night of outlandish and interesting Halloween sights and sounds after the casinos began holding a variety of Halloween events including Halloween costume contests for the best dressed.

As of 2013, they now hold a "Zombiewood" Walk as well.

A haunted attraction is held above the Wild West Casino on Main Street. It's not recommended for children younger than age thirteen. Check with them for details.

The Black Hills Storytellers regale you with stories of thrills and chills at the Tales of Halloween event. This is recommended for adults and teens sixteen years and older. On Halloween night everyone is invited to dress up in their Halloween costumes and join them for some old fashioned trick or treating at the Adams House.

This event featured a Halloween haunted house suitable for the kids and includes lots of spooky games, trick-or-treating, candy check and of course a Halloween costume contest.
