Las Vegas might not seem like one of the best Halloween RV destinations but if you take a closer look you’ll see that the two were made for each other.
Not only is October 31st officially declared as Nevada Statehood Day, but if you’re a fan of dancing, street music and raucous good times, here are three reasons why you need to add Sin City’s Halloween celebration to your RVing bucket list.
What Makes Vegas a Halloween RV Destination
Walk the Las Vegas Strip on any given day and it’s clear that some people haven’t gotten the message that Halloween only comes once a year. But that’s OK because it makes for interesting people watching whenever you visit.
For those of us who love to party during the spooky, creepy crawly month of October, Las Vegas is the best place to park your RV for the ultimate Halloween-themed celebrations. These three big events prove it:
The Las Vegas Zombie Walk
The zombies begin stalking hapless gamblers and tacky tourists the Saturday night before Halloween. The Las Vegas Zombie Walk is the ideal family-friendly party to get your inner Zombie to come to life. Don your favorite Zombie-like look and get ready to stroll down the strip with a few hundred other ghoulish pranksters who groan and grunt down the Strip for several blocks while stunned onlookers gawk away.
Have a Zombie Wedding
The Viva Las Vegas Chapel has a zombie wedding package that isn’t for the squeamish! A zombie minister can help you renew your vows or get hitched for the first time while surrounded by eerie theatrical fog and creepy music playing in the background.
Fremont Street FrightFest
Get ready for part freak show, part dance-a-thon and all out fun for all ages at the Fremont Street FrightFest. In usual Vegas fashion, this all-out street party brings in thousands of costumed revelers to the biggest free Halloween party in Sin City.
These three Las Vegas Halloween celebrations are just the beginning, there are many, many more to check out.
Where to Go RVing in Vegas for Halloween
The best part of heading to Vegas for Halloween is it’s easy to stay there in your RV. Of the 17 parks near Las Vegas showing in campgroundreviews.com, the closest one to the action is the Main Street Station Casino RV Park.
It’s nothing fancy and it’s literally under the freeway, but at just under $20 a night for full-hookups and within walking distance to Fremont Street, Las Vegas RV camping doesn’t get any better than that! The park is safe and not spooky at all!
