Here Come the Mummies / Photo: Todd Gill, Fayetteville Flyer staff

It’s time to put on your costumes and restock your secret candy stash, kids. Halloween is right around the corner.

The holiday falls on a Monday this year, so that means we’ll be trick-or-treating on a school night in 2022.

There’s a lot more happening in and around Fayetteville as well.

We’ve compiled a list of all the Halloween-related events we could find for both children/families and for adults.

We’ll certainly add to this list between now and Halloween, and feel free to drop us a line and let us know about anything we’ve missed.

Have a happy and safe Halloween, everyone.
