Think of this guide as your go-to for Halloween Events 2023
Starting in September, with the Plano Balloon Festival: 11+ Best Tips for this Family-Friendly Event (2023), these fun family-friendly Fall Festivals are an annual staple in the Plano and North Dallas area.
This time of year, our spooky season, is so much fun! The end of October cannot come soon enough, so we are excited to share our favorite Halloween-themed events, including Trunk n Treat events which often include a costume contest and face painting.
Most trunk or treat events are free to attend and some host food trucks.
If it rains, we also love Indoor Alternatives for Halloween Events 2023 too.
No need to panic! If the weather doesn’t cooperate and it’s wet, our youngest kids can still enjoy Halloween fun on October 31st.
Often these are family-friendly events or an indoor Halloween party. The Boo Bash was often a fun event at Tom Muehlenbeck Center in Plano.
Halloween is always October 31 and a tradition for so many local kids to get dressed up in their costumes to go out in groups or with friends and parents in a fun neighborhood where homes are decorated and neighbors are ready to give out candy at their front door.
These are the top Plano neighborhoods for your Halloween experience.
If you want to choose your own Pumpkins, so you can get your pumpkins carved at home, this list of popular Pumpkin Patches should inspire you to plan your visit.
Many of these also combine other fun Halloween activities including hayrides, corn mazes, a pumpkin carving contest, trains, rides, and more.
Why not star in your own Horror Movie by visiting a local Haunted House in the DFW area? Some of these may also host ghost tours and are decorated as you would imagine, like Halloween movies.
