Halloween in Dallas
Even though Halloween is one day away there is no need to worry if plans for the night have not yet been established.
There are plenty of entertaining things to do around Dallas, with and without costumes, that don’t involve trick-or-treating.
Here is an entertainment guide to fill your Halloween night.
The Peoples’s Last Halloween Party
Celebrate Halloween one day early by heading to The People’s Last Stand in Mockingbird Station tonight at 8 p.m.
The event, hosted by CultureMap Nightlife Editor Jonathan Rienstra and The Dallas Diva Farah Fleurima, will feature complimentary snacks, custom cocktails, live music by DJ Blake Ward, classic slasher flicks and a fortune teller.
Not only is the event free, each guest will also receive two complimentary drink tickets.
Pumpkin Carving at The Old Monk
Participate in a traditional Halloween activity today and tomorrow with pumpkin carving at the Old Monk.
The $10 admission fee includes carving tools, a pumpkin and a pint.
All proceeds go to the North Texas Food Bank and the bar matches each dollar.
“Trick ’R Treat”
See the 2007 film starring Anna Paquin, Brian Cox and Dylan Baker tonight at 7 p.m. at Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson.
Since Halloween falls on a Thursday this year, the holiday coincides with Deep Ellum Brewing Co.’s regular Thursday brewing tours.
Deepo’ween will feature live music by Loyal Sally and food from Easy Sliders Food Truck.
The evening will also include a costume contest, with prizes being awarded to the best and worst costume.
Tickets are $10 at the door and include a commemorative pint glass, three pint beer tokens, live music, a brewery tour and the costume competition.
Sissy’s Southern Kitchen and Bar is celebrating Halloween with a costume contest, raffle, Halloween-inspired cocktails and a live performance from Southern Renaissance.
Winners of the costume contest will receive cash prizes of $200, $100 and $50.
Festivities start at 5 p.m. and will continue through midnight.
Haunted Sock Hop
The Texas Theatre is hosting a Haunted Sock Hop Halloween party tomorrow night.
The free event will take place before and after the 8 p.m. screening of “The Tingler.” Guests are encouraged to wear costumes to the dance party, which will feature DJ Mr. Rid spinning Halloween-inspired tracks.
Head to the Angelika Dallas on Friday night for a free showing of a classic horror flick, “Psycho.”
Admission is available on a first come, first serve basis.
Cutting Edge Haunted House
Haunted houses are always a classic Halloween activity and some don’t close just because Halloween has passed.
Cutting Edge Haunted House will remain open 7:00 p.m. to midnight through Saturday.
If the terrifying actors and special effects aren’t enough of a draw, the multi-level venue makes Cutting Edge the Guinness World Record holder for the largest haunted house.
Entry is $25 to $50 and only cash is accepted at the door.
