ULR’s Top 16 Ways to Celebrate Halloween in Houston

Candy corn, pumpkin patches and scarecrows, oh my! Halloween is quickly approaching, so start thinking of what you want to be and check out some of our favorite places to get spooky.

Fun For All

Looking for Halloween for the entire family? These are some great options! One of our favorites is “Zoo Boo” the annual Halloween celebration held at the Houston Zoo. Kids are encouraged to come dressed in costume and enjoy the pumpkin patch, as well as the zoo’s “Howlerween Adventure” where kids can learn more about Howler monkeys and their release into the wild!! Tickets available for sale, or free admission for members!

Haunted Houses

Looking to be scared silly? Visit one of these Houston haunted houses! Our favorite is “Nightmare on the Bayou” which was named the #1 Haunted House in the US by American Haunts 2017. Set on the bayou, the chills and thrills are endless as you wander through a maze of scares that differs from year to year! This one is so scary that pregnant women and anyone with heart conditions are not allowed! Tickets start at $22.

Night Life

Trick or treat–these are some of the best ways to leave the kids at home and head out for a night on the town. Although many bars and restaurants throw Halloween parties, these are the top picks from ULR agents. Looking to hit a few parties? The Washington Ave Pub Crawl is a great way to attend several parties and get drink specials all night long. You are also entered into a $4,000 cash costume contest for “Best Dressed. Tickets start at $9 and increase after October 12, 2017.
