Main Street Fright Fest, Temple
When Halloween arrives, it’s time to head just outside of Waco and check out Main Street in Temple! This safe and fun community event allows families to celebrate Halloween, dress up in their costumes, and have some delicious treats. Although this event is entirely free to attend, there is a suggested donation for every one of two canned food items so the community can support the Food for Families organization.
Boo at the Zoo, Austin
If you’re ready to have fun and want your kids to enjoy Halloween in a safe and entertaining space: it’s time to go to Boo at the Zoo in Austin! The Austin Zoo gives out candy, has cute-themed meals for their animals, and helps kids learn more about the world around them, all while having Halloween fun. Costumes are encouraged, and there’s always a lot of excitement around this gathering. If you’re in the area looking at houses for rent in Austin: this is worth the stop!
Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Texas, Arlington
As the oldest Six Flags in the country: Six Flags Over Texas is an incredible theme park that has a little bit of everything. In the fall, once moods get a little spooky, 20 new themed attractions pop up, with more scary tricks and treats every year. If you need a break from the fun-themed mayhem, you can check out haunted houses and live shows! There’s a lot of fun once things get dark when it gets a little scarier in the park. This is an incredibly fun stop to make!
