Halloween is just around the corner. Plus, with this year’s holiday falling on a Monday, there’s plenty of festivities happening throughout the long weekend. Halloween, despite what the candy companies might have you believe, isn’t best experienced by kids.
Here’s a quick look at some of the great haunts and happenings in College Station; events that’ll leave you screaming in delight:
Fun and Frights with these Halloween Events
- The Rocky Horror Picture Show at Grand Stafford Theater. Part musical, part horror film, and all parts extravagance, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is one-of-a-kind event. The original film became a cult phenomenon when fans transformed the show into a live performance between actors and audience. A live performance that gets religiously repeated every year. There’s props, costumes, and gags all around to entertain, engage, and shock the unwary. TAMU’s student organization Cepheid Variable is hosting this year’s rendition at the Grand Stafford Theatre. Tickets are $7, but buy early as this will sell out.
- Kapa Sigma’s Wicked Woods. You might be surprised to learn that one of the largest haunted trails in the country occurs in your own backyard. This Halloween marks the 21st anniversary of the Kappa Sigma event. This is one of the fraternity’s larger public events in which they transform their five-acre backyard into a maze of frights and good times. The group won’t release the details of this year’s trail themes and events until just before Halloween. However, historically, the price of entry hovers around $10 with a discount given for those who bring canned goods. All proceeds go to a fraternity-selected charity.
Experience the Best in Bryan
- Fright Nights at the Palace Theater. Located in Downtown Bryan, the popular Palace Theater transforms into a wicked haunted house every October. Here, you’ll enjoy an evening of entertainment and haunted meanderings. Similar to the Kappa Sigma event, the cost is $10 and all proceeds will go to selected charities.
- Downtown Bryan Zombie Ball & Pub Crawl. This annual event isn’t just for the 21+ population. In fact, TAMU students of all ages will enjoy the zombie-oriented event as it is a great way to dress up and experience downtown Bryan with a high-energy crew. This event includes special activities for guests, multiple costume contests, drink specials (for 21+), face paint assistance, raffle entries, and musical performances. You’ll even enjoy a discounted ticket to the aforementioned Fright Nights event at the Palace Theater. Such a group event allows you to share your costume creativity, meet new ghoul-loving friends, and explore the city.
