Get your spook on with thrilling adventures, family-friendly festivals and Halloween fun in The Colony. Whether you love scary stories or classic Halloween movies, there is something for everyone to enjoy this fall. 

Family Fright Night
Stewart Creek Park

A Halloween campout for all! This annual overnight experience features costume and scream contests, tent trick-or-treating, hayrides and more. So settle around the campfire for s'mores or buckle up for the scary movie screening and enjoy some festive fun with the family. 

Haunted Shadows Lake Trail
Blue Sky Sports Center 

Topping the scary meter is Haunted Shadows Lake Trail, a Blair Witch Project-style experience for teenagers and adults. Each weekend in October, brave souls can traverse the overgrown woods by moonlight through a marked trail to discover the creatures that go bump in the night. A PG-rated experience can be requested for younger children when purchasing tickets at Blue Sky Sports Center. 

The Shacks at Austin Ranch

Halloween has gone to the dogs! Dress up your pup and bring them to The Shacks for a howling good time. Enjoy doggie costume contests, raffles, photo ops and delicious bites from the six on-site restaurants. Afterward, make new friends at Bacon's Dog Park, the one-acre, off-leash dog park.  

Halloween Party
Truck Yard

It's always a party at this honky-tonk beer garden, but Truck Yard brings the tricks and treats at their annual celebration. Come for the costume contests and pumpkin smashing, then stay for the yard games and local brews on tap. Don't forget to bring your dog to the pet-friendly patio.
