Best Things To Do in Houston in October with Kids: Halloween, Pumpkin Patches, Fall Festivals

October is upon us, and with that comes all things fall and Halloween. Bring on the pumpkin spice lattes, the pumpkin patches, the pumpkin carving... just bring on all things pumpkin! We may still be navigating unique times, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of fall festivities to enjoy and Halloween activities to keep the season alive. Fall favorites like the P-6 Farms corn maze, Zoo Boo at the Houston Zoo, and Dewberry Farms Fall Festival are still happening this year, albeit a little differently than in years past, and we are pumped for the socially-distanced but just-as-spooky Haunted Drive

You can also amp up the Halloween activities at home by trying out some of our awesome Halloween games at your very own (socially distanced) Halloween party. We even have some spooky snacks ready for you and your kids to test out to make Halloween extra special, while keeping an eye on the CDC's new Halloween guidelines.

No matter what, we're confident that this October is going to be spooky, silly, and extra fun, and we are here for it!
