Your Guide to Halloween Weekend in Dallas — Socially Distanced Outdoor Events and Safe Trick-or-Treating
The Best Things To Do This Spooky HolidayBY Megan Ziots
Although this Halloween weekend in Dallas will look quite different from previous years, you can still celebrate — as safely as possible — with several socially distanced events, including virtual horror movie trivia nights, outdoor, masked “haunts,” and holiday-themed mini golf.
Trick or Treat on Lowest Greenville
A safer alternative to neighborhood trick or treating, Lowest Greenville’s event takes place on October 31 from 11 am to 3 pm. Local businesses sporting orange balloons on their doors will be handing out candy, while restaurants and shops will offer specials and sales for the spooky holiday. If drink deals are your thing, stop by Truck Yard for draft beer specials or pick up $5 Moscow Mules at HG Sply Co.
Scare Fare at The Statler
The Staler hotel is also hosting a trick-or-treat treasure hunt for families from 11 am to 6 pm. When you check in you’ll receive a kit with a map of all the candy stations throughout the first floor lobby. You’ll stop at each restaurant, as well as action stations where the kids can get candy and the adults can enjoy food and beverage stations. The Garden Court “Graveyard” will have games, a fortune teller, and magician as well. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
Movie Trivia Night: Spooky
On Thursday at 7 pm, participate in a spooky movie trivia night for a good cause. Dallas non-profit Ability Connection is hosting the virtual event for $25 per player with proceeds benefiting people with disabilities. Eight rounds feature questions centered around horror and horror comedy films.
Another Round “Hole-oween”
Head to Dallas’ favorite mini-golf bar for “Hole-oween” from October 23 through Halloween. Schedule your tee-time for Halloween-themed holes and boozy shots (which are available all October). Kids and adults can enjoy candy stations at each hole to accompany their Bobbing For Apples, Sour Putt Kid, or Sugar Skull drink.
Grange Halloween Dinner
Book your reservation at Grange Hall this Halloween night for a spooky dinner beginning with a glass of Krug champagne at 7 pm. Dinner will commence at 7:30 pm. It’s $250 per person and reservations can be made by emailing [email protected]
Truck Yard Annual Halloween Bash
Truck Yard is hosting its annual Halloween Bash this year — with social distancing protocols in place of course. Starting at 11 am, the all-day event features a dog costume contest, human costume contest, live music, pumpkin smashing, and drink specials at the outdoor beer garden.
Halloween Weekend at The Rustic
On Friday through Sunday evenings this Halloween weekend, Uptown’s The Rustic is hosting costume contests, prizes, and live music at their outdoor venue.
On Friday, October 30, CBD-infused skincare brand Fitish (a beauty companion of sorts to activewear) is hosting an immersive, outdoor haunt experience in the Design District from 3 pm to 8 pm. Wear a mask with your costume, take a photo, and get a treat. Plus, you’ll have a chance to win $500 in “Fitish funds.”

Ida’s Halloween Mask’Querade
Perhaps make a reservation at Addison’s Ida Claire on Saturday at 8 pm. For $50 per person, you’ll get a three-course dinner with cocktail pairings. You’ll also enjoy tarot readings, costume contest, a DJ, and photo booth. Reserve your spot by emailing [email protected]
Dia de los Muertos Oak Cliff
On Sunday from 6 pm to 10 pm, celebrate Dia de los Muertos at CocoAndre Chocolatier. The free event will feature an interactive walk-thru art exhibit by local artists. You’re welcome to bring flowers, etc. to place on the community ofrenda as well. Each free ticket registration will also enter your name into the raffle for a chance to win a custom CocoAndre ofrenda box and more.
