7 Halloween events to enjoy near Canyon Falls
With our frightfully convenient location in Flower Mound, Argyle and Northlake, Canyon Falls is close to fun events and attractions all year ‘round. For the festive Halloween season, we’ve rounded up 7 of our favorite local events for kids, grownups and even the dogs.
Halloween at the Heard, Oct. 14
This fun family event features trick-or-treating along the eerie Dinosaurs Live! life-size animatronic trail, haunted by a 46-foot T-Rex and 10 new dinosaurs. Families will enjoy a creepy evening of fun activities, including a movie on the Heard’s outdoor amphitheater stage. If you can’t come to this extra-spooky evening, Dinosaurs Live! continues through Feb. 19, 2024.
Celebrate Roanoke, Oct. 14
Not exactly a Halloween event, Celebrate Roanoke is definitely a treat. Now in its 26th year, this street festival in historic downtown Roanoke has a drone light show, two music stages with live music, pony rides, rodeo activities, crafts, games and much more. Stay for dinner in Roanoke, the Unique Dining Capital of Texas, with more than 40 restaurants downtown.
Grapevine Halloween, October 7-31
Grapevine is best-known as the Christmas Capital of Texas, and they also scare up a good Halloween season. Events include Tricks & Treats for kids at Sea Life Grapevine Aquarium, every Saturday in October. Bewitched by the Barn features spooky old tales with popcorn and cider on Oct. 27 at historic Nash Farm. Enjoy scary movies for kids and adults in October at the restored Palace Theater. On Oct. 28, the Hallowine Trail is a sipping tour of multiple wine tasting rooms in and around historic downtown Grapevine. The Trick ‘R Treat train runs Oct. 29 at the Grapevine Vintage Railroad.
Glowing Pumpkin Plunge, Oct. 21
With its floating pumpkin patch, this glow-in-the-dark event is a Flower Mound tradition for the entire family. The Community Activity Center’s indoor pool will be decorated with black lights for this spooktacular event, which also has fun activities outside. Pre-registration is required as spots are limited.
Woof-O-Ween, Oct. 25
Dress your pup in their favorite Halloween costume for Flower Mound’s annual Woof-O-Ween. Awards will be given for most creative, scariest, best homemade, funniest, and best pet/owner look-a-like costumes. Treats, photos and music add to the festivities at the Hound Mound Dog Park. No registration is required.
Denton’s Day of the Dead Festival, Oct. 27-28
Denton’s Day of the Dead Festival captures Denton’s artistic spirit, paying homage to fall’s treasures such as cooler weather, the harvest, Dia de los Muertos and all things Halloween. This street festival has song and dance, good food and drink, Denton’s original Halloween Cabaret “Cirque du Horror,” and a lantern-lit twilight parade.
Lewisville Hunter’s Full Moon Hike, Oct. 28
Observe a natural phenomenon of this time of the year with the Hunter’s Full Moon Hike along the trails at the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area. According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the Hunter's Moon was a signal to prepare for the upcoming cold winter by going hunting. This is a rare opportunity to experience the trails at the LLELA after dark.
