Halloween Happenings Across Texas

Written by , published October 15, 2013 Photographs by Michael Amador

halloween3Calling all princesses, ghosts, baseball players, fairies, superheroes and rockstars: October in Texas means endless opportunities to dress up and play.

Halloween festivities of all kinds have been planned across Texas this fall, from haunted houses and train rides to  games at the zoo. The Woodlands Children's Museum is hosting a fun-packed party where little ones can navigate through a dark bat cave maze and participate in a mummy wrap. A spooky night of camping in The Colony's Stewart Street Park includes a tent decorating contest, a campfire sing-a-long, and a late night movie screening.
