From ghostly movies to costume parties, here are 7 ways to make your October “spook-tacular.”

  1. If you liked the classic Mel Brooks film “Young Frankenstein,” you’ll love the musical rendition presented by Allen’s Community Theatre. Performances run Oct. 13-29. Get tickets.
  2. Take a spooky swim at the Halloween Bash at the Nat on Oct. 20. Compete in a costume contest, then stick around for a screening of “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Open to all ages.
  3. Go pumpkin picking at the Creekwood Pumpkin Patch and Fall Festival. The festival takes place on Oct. 21, but the patch is open until Oct. 31, 9 a.m. to dusk.
  4. Bring your littlest pumpkins to Halloween Story Time at Allen Public Library on Oct. 27. Free tickets are available before each story time (10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.) at the Children’s Desk.
  5. Turn a typical pumpkin into a high-speed racer for The Edge’s Pumpkin Derby, Oct. 28. Open to ages 6-17.
  6. 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. 28.
  7. Put your costume on ice at Allen Community Ice Rink's Halloween Skate, Oct. 28. Wear a costume and get free skate rental, while supplies last!

This year Halloween falls on Tuesday, 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.
