Mall Fall Festival



Michelle Parker, of the Mall of Abilene, says the annual Fall Festival is scheduled for Thursday, October 27th from 6-8pm at the Women’s Dillard’s Courtyard. Local organizations will be set up to provide games, candy and prizes. The mall also plans to host a Costume Contest too. During this time, retailers may pass out candy if they so choose. This is definitely an event that is fun, safe, and family friendly event.

Fall Festival at Area Churches



Another great way to entertain your little goblins this time of year is to take them to area churches for their Fall Festival and/or Trunk or Treat. You might think about hitting more than one so your kid is sure to have enough candy and treats to justify 3 dental visits this year.

Halloween Parties at Local Bars



As with everywhere else, Halloween is a big night for costume parties at the local bars. Some bars have their parties the weekend before Halloween, some have it on Halloween and some do both. Regardless, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a costume contest in every bar or club you visit.

  • 10/29 at 7pm and 11pm

Area Haunted Houses



The number of area haunted houses has dwindled down just a bit over the years, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any. In my opinion, I think the remaining haunted houses are the strongest and most frightening of any we’ve had in years.
