Celebrating Halloween in Dallas Ft Worth

Dallas is always a city abuzz with excitement and what better time to enjoy the energy that this city has to offer than at Halloween.

Hangman’s House of Horrors.

They are doing a one night event at this Fort Worth haunted house that’s lights up and specifically for “scaredy cats,” families, and kids. That’s October 28, 4:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. Big fan of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller?” Be there on October 27 to try and break the world record for most dancing zombies. Know the dance or wanna learn. You can go here to participate. Otherwise, it’s open nightly. Location off I-30, Oct. 26-Nov. 3.

Primebar’s Halloween Spectacular. Late night Uptown fun includes VIP table options, costume contests (prizes are worth up to $500), and live DJs. Primebar, Oct. 27.

Halloween at the Old Monk. The Old Monk really loves Halloween, as evidenced by the pumpkin-carving contest they’ve got going through October 31. But Oct. 27 is the day to party (though you can still carve up a gourd if you want to). The DJ starts at 9 p.m., and there’s a costume contest with serious prizes. Best individual costume gets $200 cash, scariest gets $100, crowd favorite another $100, and the best group costume gets a $150 gift card. Nearly identical parties (with exact same start times, pumpkin carving opportunities, and prizes for great costumes) can be found across 75 at Idle Rich, Renfield’s, and Black Friar. Old Monk, Oct. 27.

Ghostland Observatory. This Austin duo has the perfect name for a Halloween party, and they know it—showing up in Dallas around Fright Night and encouraging folks to attend their concert in costume. “Stranger Lover” makes for a good soundtrack to an evening full of masked identities. Palladium Ballroom, Oct. 27.

Oak Lawn Halloween Street Party. 3500 Block of Cedar Springs, Oct. 27.

Halloween British Invasion Mischief Night. What could be better than a British-themed Halloween party? Timothy Oulton supplies the Union Jack paraphernalia, attendees supply the costumes (best one wins a prize), and the lounge supplies drink specials and a DJ. Candleroom, Oct. 27.

Pumpkin Carving Contest. First-, second-, and third-place winners get $100, $50, and $25 bar tabs. Carving starts at 7 p.m., and judging starts at 10 p.m. The Libertine, Oct. 29.

The People’s Last Halloween Party. Free. The People’s Last Stand, Oct. 30.

Halloween on Halloween Party. The I Heart Cinema-sponsored fun starts at 7 p.m. with DJ Casper in the lobby, but the movie screens at 8:30 p.m. sharp. There’s also a short documentary about the making of the 1978 movie. Once you’re good and jumpy, there’s a set from Denton-based band Savage and the Big Beat. Don’t miss the costume contest, Halloween-themed drink specials, “tricks,” and all the “cinematic swag” you can stuff in your plastic jack-o’-lantern. Texas Theatre, Oct. 31.
