Question

Salaam, Brother. I am in need of an urgent answer to my question and so I have come to you. My friends invited me to a Halloween event recently. It is called Scream fest. You enter a series of Mazes and Scary people pop out and scare you. Although, I will not actually be celebrating Halloween, it is Halloween related. It is not a party so alhamdullilah there will be no alcohol consumed. Is it forbidden for me to go to this event because it is Halloween related, or is it permissible, as I believe I am not actually celebrating Halloween. I would much appreciate it if you could answer this question, asI need to give my friends an answer on whether I can go or not within the next day or so. Jazakullah for your time.
