Oxford always has events happening throughout the year. The town gets livelier with each holiday, and Halloween is no exception. There’s the usual trunk-or-treats, trick-or-treating, and costumes. Being a college town, Oxford is able to offer more events for Ole Miss students as well as the community.
For haunted houses, there are a couple of options in town. The Library Sports Bar has a fun one and all ages are welcome! The cost is $5 for one trip or $8 for unlimited trips. They will have it open October 28th and 29th from 6-10pm. The Library gives all of their proceeds to Mississippi Critterz, a nonprofit organization that helps care for homeless animals. Another haunted house is provided by the Oxford Police Department. They decorate their training building on Molly Barr Road in Halloween décor and make it an exciting adventure that is sure to get you in the spirit! You can join them October 24th-26th from 6-9pm and cost is only $5.
On the 24th from 7pm-10pm, the Monster Ball will be held in the Diamond Club at Swayze Field to support Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. The adult costume party will have raffle tickets, a DJ, food, beverages, and many other activities to help support Le Bonheur. You can buy your $50 ticket and learn more here.
The next day, October 25th, Proud Larry’s is having their Scary Larry’s Masquerade. Throw on a costume, eat some candy, have some drinks, and listen to the amazing band. Doors open at 8pm, and the band will start at 9. This is for ages 18+. Tickets are $10! Click here to get yours.
