Spooky season in Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach means the air gets just a bit cooler, but the water stays warm and the beaches are uncrowded. This means lots of fun during the day and plenty of time in the evening after the sun sets to find fun things to do for Halloween

Halloween Notte

The annual Halloween Notte event at the Charlotte County Fairgrounds is fun for all! With three weekends of festivities in October, leading up to Halloween night, you can go again and again. They typically offer pony rides, bounce houses, a haunted house, axe throwing, zombie paintball, and much more. The whole family will love it!
