The weeks before Halloween in Baltimore are often filled with fun activities and good times, but this year, due to COVID-19, things may look a little different. I have been searching the regular events – some are being held, some are not – so I thought I would compile a list of what is currently scheduled to happen.
**Please note that plans can change, and you should check with the organizations to ensure their events are happening as planned.**
If you hear of any events not on this list, please let me know so I can add them!
