Instead of hopping neighborhoods and navigating dark streets this Halloween, take your family to the Wolf Pen Creek Festival Site on Friday, Oct. 28 for Trick or Treat at Werewolf Creek, where more than 100,000 pieces of free candy will be available.
From 5-10 p.m., Wolf Pen Creek will become a five-acre trick-or-treating paradise, thanks in part to 80 candy booths hosted by local businesses, non-profits and other groups. Activities include a mini hay maze, Paw Paw’s Party Train, bounce houses, local food vendors and more. Admission is free.
Torrential rains forced us to cancel last year’s fun, but you’ll notice some new features since the inaugural event in 2014.
In addition to providing candy in its on-site courtyard, the Arts Council of Brazos Valley will unveil a new family-friendly exhibit called “Tales of the Summer.” The summer–themed show includes original paintings, photographs, and sculptures by dozens of Brazos Valley artists.
We’ve also replaced the hay rides with shuttles from Post Oak Mall due to safety concerns. From 4:45-10:15 p.m., two accessible Texas A&M buses will transport guests to and from the Arts Council of Brazos Valley building and the Post Oak Mall parking area nearest the park. The festival site is also an easy walk from the mall.
Trick or Treat at Werewolf Creek is the place to be for safe Halloween fun!
