Halloween in our favorite small towns

Most of the adult celebrating this year will be taking place on Oct. 30. We have of course received invitations to the best private parties, but for those of you who haven't...

We noted last year that Collinsville is just so "charming and inclusive," so we're sure there are plenty of Cat-o-Lanterns there to make DH feel right at home. This little-town-that-can takes Halloween seriously, and we know many of our peeps will be participating in their annual Halloween parade and festivities Saturday evening. On a recent expedition to Collinsville, the Scenics enjoyed tacos and exotic coconut lemonade at new restaurant Husk and browsing for antiques at the massive, multi-dealer Antiques on the Farmington. You could make a whole day of it. And a whole night. We've gotten wind of a costume party with live music at beloved Collinsville dive, The Fireplace.

Over in our other favorite small town, Torrington, our favorite bar/the only Torrington bar we know, Snapper Magee's will be having a Halloween party including open bar and costume contest for $25 (must be purchased in advance). We quite enjoyed the vibe there on a night out over the summer.

  1. I actually was in Torrington last year and then we went to the Farmington River to go Tubing and the Connecticut magazine talked about the town that had their annual Halloween parade.
