Halloween Happenings Across Texas

Written by , published October 17, 2013

It can be a bummer to only get to wear a great Halloween costume for a single night. And to children, collecting a bag full of candy certainly seems like it should happen more than once a year. Luckily, there are lots of opportunities across the state to have some Halloween fun in the next couple of weeks (and, of course, on All Hallow’s Eve itself).

In addition to carnivals and community trick-or-treating events, several cities add a historical spin on this spooky night. In Bonham on Oct. 26, visitors at the Sam Rayburn House Museum can visit the graves of this statesman, his family and local historical figures. The 10th annual Cemetery Tour in Victoria, Oct. 25-26, features re-enactors telling entertaining and informative stories showcasing the area’s rich history. And San Angelo’s historic Fort Concho offers special evening tours of the site with scary tales and real stories of the 1800s Oct. 28-29.
