There’s no more festive holiday than Halloween and there’s no more town ready to party than Miami. From insane events to block parties to outdoor activities to family-friendly holiday shindigs, Miami has something for everyone on Halloween -- you just have to get off your couch to join the revelry. Here are the best Halloween events and parties around Miami.
Dress Up Fancy for a Luxe Halloween Bash
Nothing at The Biltmore comes cheap, but the chic annual Halloween party at the iconic hotel is well worth shelling out. A buffet feast and open bar fuel attendees, as Chicago’s fanciest partiers rub shoulders in the gorgeous hotel ballroom. Don’t slack on your outfit if you hope to have a shot at the costume contest.

Get Devilish at a Wynwood Block Party
The annual HalloWYN block party at the Wynwood Marketplace always promises holiday fun, but this year’s fiery dragon theme (ignited by sponsor Fireball) will surely heat up your weekend. In the Dragon's Den you’ll find cage dancers and performers playing with fire, in the market there are vendors and other entertainments, while outside some of the city’s best food trucks turn out. Come to compete in the serious costume contest, which awards $100 to the winner and a $100 bar tab to second place.

Hike Off Halloween Candy
Halloween festivities tend to focus on indulgences like sweets and booze, so for a change of pace head out to Bill Baggs Park for some holiday exercise. On October 18 and 19, head to the park after dark for a spooky hike by the sea, as well as family-friendly activities like face painting, games and rides, as well as plenty of food and drink.

Get Autumnal at a Pumpkin Patch
The Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch never fails to deliver autumnal feelings to balmy Peacock Park. All weekend before Halloween the festival will feature a classic pumpkin patch alongside carnival rides, photo booths complete with rustic backdrops, a Scarecrow Village, pumpkin decorating tent, corn maze and tons of pumpkin-flavored treats both edible and alcoholic.
