Halloween is a different kind of magical holiday that everyone around the country can enjoy. Fort Worth has a wealth of things to do for Halloween that are fun for the whole family! From haunted houses to Halloween events and festivals for kids, you’ll definitely get the most out of this time of year when you live in the DFW area. Here are our top three must-do activities happening around Fort Worth:

Get a Little Wild at Boo at the Zoo
Every year, the Fort Worth Zoo puts on Boo at the Zoo during the last weekend of October. This fun family activity includes trick or treating stations, carnival games and even animal shows! Of course, appropriate costumes are encouraged so pull out those group themed getups. The best part about this spooktacular event is that it’s free with zoo admission!

Trails and Treats Has Lots of Things to Do for Halloween
Another great outdoor activity that’s good for the family is Trails and Treats at the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge. This event is chock-full of traditional fall activities to commemorate the 1969 sighting of Goatman. You can expect leisurely hayrides, calming canoe trips and even a costume contest! There are cryptozoology talks geared towards those interested in the legend of Goatman, making this occasion both spooky and educational.

Attend the Spookiest Shindig of the Year
Last but not least is the annual Halloweentown in Funkytown event hosted by the Food Hall at Crocket Row. This fun and free event is held on Halloween night and is sure to be a hit with the whole family! You can trick or treat, dance to groovy tunes and dress up in your best costume. There will even be BOOzy bar specials for guests 21 and older.

Attending these Fort Worth events is not only a great way to have fun with the family, but they also give you a chance to explore your community! At Silver Leaf Homes we want you to connect with the area you live in and make memories in both your home and your neighborhood.
