Nothing gets the adrenaline pumping like a good scare. Enjoy a night filled with horror at the Horror Adventures – one of the areas at the highly-anticipated Riyadh Season’s Winter Wonderland – with a haunted house, a scary maze, and terrifying games. Fancy dress is optional but would be great for a laugh, so feel free to make an effort.

DQ Trunk or Treat

Halloween Trunk or Treat

You’ll want to do more than just don a pumpkin onesie for this party. So why not rev up the Halloween fun by decking out the trunk of your car? The premise couldn’t be simpler: A bunch of families come together at the Tuwaiq Palace parking lot and let your kids walk from car to car collecting sweet treats. The best decorated car will win a prize. The event is free, but participants are required to register. Spots are also filling up fast, so you’ll need to be quick if you want to get in on the action.

Tuwaiq Palace Parking Area, Diplomatic Quarter, Oct 31, 6pm to 8.30pm. One ticket is for one car and its passengers. Register here. @dqliving
