It’s a spooky year for sure this year, but despite the scares of diseases, elections and that one weird neighbor’s fascination with candy corn, Katy wants to get out and celebrate. Here are several Katy-area events for little ghouls and their poltergeist parental units – or just the random goblin – to get out and enjoy. Masks are either required or encouraged at these events – but hey, it’s Halloweeen, so that’s part of the fun anyhow.
*Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic these events should all be considered subject to change and the Katy Times recommends verifying the event prior to attending.
