Halloween falls in the middle of the week this year and since it’s a school night, maybe you’ve already had your fill of ghostly hauntings and will be happy to have chocolate candy for dinner and then go to bed early on Halloween. But, for those who still want to dress up and be social, we’ve put together a list of festive Halloween outings that includes options designed to please kids of all ages.

Ghosts and Grub Dinner

The George Ranch Historical Park is hosting an after-hours Halloween event to feature a special “Ghosts and Grub” dinner. Althought the menu is rumored to be devilishly-delicious, the post-dinner part of the evening sounds delightful as well. First off, guests are encouraged to wear boots or comfortable walking shoes and bring a flash light for an after-dinner walking tour of the park complete with ghostly lanterns and delightful ghost stories, some of which originated at the Ranch according to organizers.

Reservations are required. Guests must be at least 12 years-old and able to manage the mile-long Halloween hike. The Ghost and Grub gathering is scheduled from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Check the forecast and bring an umbrella if bad weather is predicted as this is a rain or shine event. Tickets are $35 per person and are non-refundable. For reservations, call 281-343-0218 extension 220 or via email: education@georgeranch.org

Halloween Monster Mayhem

The Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center is hosting a monster-pleasing gathering with lots of fun, spooky activities to include a safe indoor-style trick-or-treat hunt on Halloween.

The museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and tickets are $12 for children and adults and $11 for senior citizens over 65 years-old. For those serving in the military, tickets for soldiers and their families are $11 each with valid military identification (up to six people). Children under one year-old and museum members are free.

The Fort Bend Children’s’ Museum is located at 198 Kempner St. in Sugar Land. For more information, call 832-742-2800 or visit www.childrensdiscoveryfb.org

NPC Harvest Fest- A Halloween Alternative

A kid-friendly, indoor gathering hosted by New Pointe Church is scheduled from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Halloween. The event features free food and free candy while supplies last. This is a safe alternative to trick-or-treating as all activities are indoors. Party activities include interactive games, crafts, prize contests, giveaways and special activities for toddlers as well as school-aged children. Kid-friendly costumes are welcome but church leaders ask that guests leave their overly-scary costume at home. Also, please no witch costumes, goblins, devils, ghouls or horror-movie type masks as younger children will also be at the party. In addition, children must be accompanied by an adult. New Pointe Church is located at 435 FM 1092 Road #J in Stafford. For more information, visit www.newpointechurch.net

Creepy Hollow

For those seeking the ultimate scary haunted house-type experience, consider the Creepy Hollow set of attractions that include the Scare Factory, Dark Woods, Pitch Black, and Escape the Lab. Be warned each is considered terrifying in its own unique way. Do not attempt a visit if you aren’t prepared to be confronted by some very talented horror charater actors and elaborate industrial and haunted house settings. Not recommended for children under 12 years-old, guests are allowed to wear their own costumes but masks and covered faces are off-limits. Tickets are $30 (or $40 for tickets that skip the line) and can be purchased online or at the door. Creepy Hollow is open 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Halloween night and is located at 12872 Valley Vista Drive in Rosharon. For more information, call 800-357-3323 or visit www.creepyhollowhauntedhouse.com

Happy Halloween!
