For something more educational, kids can learn about autumnal life on the prairie at Log Cabin Village's Frontier Fall Fest. Adventurous families will gain an unique, historical perspective on Fort Worth by attending the 10th annual Saints and Sinners Tour at Oakwood Cemetery.

This annual family-friendly event is a favorite for many. Kids love trick or treating in their costumes around the many candy stations located throughout the Zoo. Look for special presentations during the event that allow you an up-close-and-personal interaction with animals such as the Komodo dragon and the Asian elephant. Other Halloween-themed activities and entertainment include "Thriller" dance lessons and not-so-spooky storytime for younger children.
