Halloween is only a fews day away and we’re so excited! This year Halloween falls on a Wednesday but just because it’s on a weekday doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate. Although kids are going to be out and about trick-or-treating that doesn’t mean the adults have to miss out on all the fun. Here are 6 fun adult only activities and parties happening in Houston this Halloween.
#1 – Visit “The Haunted Trails” haunted house attraction.
“See what’s lurking in the trees at The Haunted Trails, and then get away as fast as you can. The haunted house combines the real horrors of feeling lost in a woods and feeling like you’re being chased. It has two attractions, including Psycho Hollow, which is a weird and terrifying forest filled with clowns and freaks. One ticket package includes 3D glasses to further enhance your experience in the woods.” – via Mommypoppins.com
#2 – Party with celebs at the “Halloween Goes Hollywood” party at LUMEN Lounge.

#3 – Go on a BYOB haunted hike at Memorial Park.
“Get your spooky on with BCO as we hike and slither our way through Memorial Park wooded trails and off the beaten path. What better to do on Halloween than to taunt the forest trolls? For those who make it out of the forest in one piece, we’ll fortify ourselves with pizza and beverages and toast those we left behind” – Bayoucityoutdoors.com.
