It’s the spookiest time of the year and things are fixin’ to get weirder in the ATX. Allens Boots wants everyone to have a safe, fun, and happy Halloween, so we figured we’d put together a little to-do list for y’all to enjoy. Check these out!
The Thinkery’s Candy-Free Halloween Hootenanny
If you’re like a lot of modern parents, you might be worried a bit about your kid and the sugar rush that is All Hallow’s Eve. The Thinkery’s got your back; from 6-8:30 pm, they’re putting on some crazy science shows, having a costume parade, and food — oh, and they’re offering up a bit of beer and wine for the grown-ups along the way. What they don’t have is candy, so if you’re trying to keep your kid entertained on the tame side, this is the event for you.
Rock the Casbah at the Parish
If you’re not the children-having, trick-or-treating type, you may be a bit too young, or a bit too old. If your kids are spending Halloween on campus or with their significant others, you might be exactly the type who would love a rock-solid 80’s dance party. Show up at the Parish at 10PM Halloween night and get ready to rock your socks off, because the party won’t stop until around two in the morning.
Safe Halloween Trunk or Treat at Wells Branch Community Center
There are some folks who get scared around Halloween, and it’s nothing to do with ghouls or goblins, either. If the idea of walking your kids around a strange subdivision and knocking on unknown doors ain’t your cup of tea, come down to the Trunk or Treat, where your kids can safely trick-or-treat through a pile of like-minded folks, play some games, and even get their picture taken. It’s all free, too! Just be polite and bring some candy to hand out as well.
There is a lot more, of course — Bat City is a huge place, and there’s no way we could hope to catch it all. Have a safe and happy Halloween, and don’t forget to keep your comfy boots on!
