We don't know for sure if there are bats in the cave or not, but there definitely will be ghosts, goblins, and ghouls inside this Tennessee cavern.

Unique Halloween Experience

If you are looking for a unique and unusual way to celebrate Halloween with the kiddies this year, then you definitely want to check out the 2022 Trick Or Treat In The Cave happening just outside Knoxville, Tennessee. This family-friendly event is a wonderful way to enjoy a safe Trick or Treat experience in a fun and new way.

What to Expect

Since the cave is underground, it will be a little on the chilly side at just 58 degrees so you will want to keep that in mind when planning your costumes. Outside the cave, you will find shopping from a number of businesses local to the Knoxville area. Don't miss out on the photo opportunities that will be waiting for you and be sure you stop to enjoy a cup of coffee or hot cocoa near the bonfire.

Trick or treat along the Cave Path that’s lit purple and orange in your favorite Halloween Costume. Gather yummy treats and surprises among the stalagmites and stalactites! You will see many fun surprises around each corner as you celebrate this Family Fun and Safe Halloween Knoxville Tradition at Cherokee Caverns!

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
