High Five - Halloween Events

Oct 22, 2013 11:10AM ● Published by tina

There's plenty of family-friendly fun this Halloween season.

Ghouls, goblins and ghosts, oh, my! This month, we have a host of hair-raising Halloween events to share. Be prepared to be scared with fright nights, costume contests and animal shows — but don’t fret, they’re all perfectly family friendly.

 

Six Flags Over Texas Fright Fest

Every weekend through Oct. 27, Six Flags transitions from “Thrills by Day” to “Fright by Night” at 6 p.m. Enjoy terrifying shows like Welcome to Arania’s Nightmare — the tale of a bride’s manhunt for her 14th husband — and the Zombie A-Rock-Alypse, a spooky music and dance performance by zombies and ghouls. Kids 10 and younger can dress up for the costume catwalk and will also love the Looney Tunes Spooky Town, a trick-or-treat event set in a (not-so-scary) haunted maze.

 

Boo at the Zoo

This 22nd annual event at the Fort Worth Zoo promises fun for all ages, from an animal show and pumpkin patch to a costume parade, crafts and treats. Boo at the Zoo, presented by Central Market and Wells Fargo, takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 25–27 and is free for zoo members or free with admission — $12 for adults, $9 for children ages 3–12, $9 for seniors ages 65 and older and free for children 2 and younger. 

 

DFW Pug-O-Ween

What’s cuter than pugs in costume? We say nothing! On Oct. 27, head on over to Grapevine for the 17th annual DFW Pug-O-Ween at the Grapevine Convention Center, where from 1 to 4 p.m. you can participate in a silent auction, enjoy a pug adoption parade, costume parade and pug races. The event is put on by the DFW Pug Rescue Club, which rescues about 10 lovable pugs per week and uses funds raised to pay for veterinary expenses. 

 

Brick-or-Treat

Before you and your kids venture out into the neighborhood on a candy hunt, check out Legoland Discovery Center’s Brick-or-Treat fete. The party kicks off at 2 p.m. with a kids’ costume contest and building station, where children can construct their own Halloween haunted house out of Legos. If you’d rather stay indoors during All Hallow’s Eve, celebrate with Grapevine Mills Mall’s Trick-or-Treat trail from 6 to 8 p.m. 

 

Pumpkin Design Contest

If you’re a pumpkin-carving connoisseur with a creative eye, then we know you’ll enjoy the Southlake Public Library’s pumpkin design contest. Families are invited to submit their best jack-o’-lanterns to be put on display at the library from Oct. 21–25 (one entry per family). The pumpkins will be judged by some of the area’s familiar faces (including our publisher!), and the winning family will receive a spectacular candy basket.
