Bluebird Patch Teens Spooktacular Guide To Halloween - Atlanta Edition

Haunted houses, escape games with live zombies, haunted forests and more!

As we transition into the holiday season, we realize how much fun it can be to do things working up to these events. Halloween isn’t all about the free candy, it is about the experience you get from it as well.

I love going to Pumpkin Patches and I'm a total chicken when it comes to haunted houses, but this is the year, I decided to embrace my fears and go for it.
