The Dallas Arboretum has Autumn at the Arboretum for families to attend leading up to Halloween and trick or treating the weekend before Halloween. You will love the surroundings as kids walk through displays of pumpkins and fall foliage and enjoy mazes, scavenger hunts, pumpkin searches, music, and more. Make sure to dress in your best Halloween costume for the costume contests!

After Dark in the Park

If your kids aren’t afraid of the dark, consider going to Arlington’s River Legacy Living Science Center’s After Dark in the Park. This year it will occur on October 11th, 12th, and 13th. Annual events include karaoke, animal encounters, hayride shuttles, a variety of games for kids between two and ten years of age, and a walk on the wild side.

Your family can carve a pumpkin in advance, take a photo and submit it via email, and attend After Dark in the Park to vote for your favorite.
