Halloween in Maplewood, NJ + South Orange, NJ

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Halloween is BIG in Maplewood and South Orange. There are creatively decorated homes, hours of trick-or-treating, neighborhood haunted houses, spooky art installations, festive school parades, and lots of downtown fun. It’s almost a full day affair.

One of our favorites things is to chronicle these imaginative “Halloween houses” on our Instagram feed. Many of these festive displays are created by inhabitants who work in the art and design fields. The unique decor mixed with the local architecture and crisp fallen leaves make for some epic photos.

 The famous spider house of Maplewood! One year the spider was eating Trump. It was a beloved by many, to say the least. Other times the spider has had a baby dangling from its mouth. It’s weird but people love it.
