[ARCHIVED] Halloween Fun in Allen

From ghostly movies to costume parties, here are some ways to make your October “spook-tacular.”

• Introduce kids to classic film frights with free showings of “Ghostbusters” (Oct. 18) or “The Haunting” (Oct. 25) at Allen Public Library.

• Enjoy ghoulish musical selections during the Allen Philharmonic “Haunt-Cert” on Oct. 21. Includes favorite tunes from Harry Potter, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Wicked and more!

• Turn a typical pumpkin into a high-speed racer for The Edge’s Pumpkin Derby, Oct. 22. Open to ages 6-17.

• Have a “howl” of a good time with your furry friend at the Howl-O-Ween Barkin’ Bash. Dress up your dog for contests, raffles, games and more on Oct. 29.

• Channel your best Sarah Palin or Bill Clinton at the Presidential Masquerade Ball on Oct. 29. It’s held at the Allen Senior Recreation Center, but all (adult) ages are welcome.

• Put your costume on ice at Allen Community Ice Rink's Halloween Skate, Oct. 29. Wear a costume and get free skate rental, while supplies last!

This year Halloween falls on Monday, Oct. 31. Though the City of Allen does not have a citywide trick-or-treating schedule, your HOA may have designated a specific night to pass out candy.

Remember that Allen’s curfew ordinance prohibits juveniles (ages 10-16) from remaining in a public place after 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, or midnight on Friday and Saturday. Parents can be charged a fine of up to $500 if they knowingly permit—or, by insufficient control, allow—juvenile children to break curfew.
