If you’re looking for things to do around the Woodlands this fall season, check out these four spooky events.

The Haunting at Bear Branch Park

Ready to be spooked? The Woodlands Township Parks and Recreation Department has put together some eerie sets and found some restless ghosts to get you in the spirit for Halloween. You can walk the haunted woods and face your fears every Friday and Saturday starting October 8 through October 30. Ticket sales open at 7:45 PM, so come down to Bear Branch Park to take part in a spooktacular time. Follow their Facebook event page for any updates or changes depending on weather conditions.

Tandem Trick or Treat

Riva Row Boathouse is hosting a trick or treating event with a twist. Dress up and grab a tandem kayak and paddle around various stops around the Waterway and Lake Woodlands. Fill up your bag with treats, make a splash, and experience a new way to celebrate Halloween this year. Pre-registration is required so check out the times and dates available and book your excursion ASAP.


Southern Star Brewery is hosting a Halloween kickoff event on October 23, OctoBEARfest. Proceeds from the event will go to rehoming abused and neglected bears from the exotic pet industry. You can expect to find delicious barbecue, vendors, a kid zone, and craft beers. Make drinking more festive this year – it’s for charity.

Fall Festival

It wouldn’t be fall without stopping by a pumpkin patch. The Good Stuff’s Fall Festival is in full swing, with thousands of pumpkins ready for carving, hayrides, food vendors, and a spooky wood walk. Not to mention a bouncy house, face painting, and hamster wheel races. There will also be locally farmed goods available, so make sure to stop by to see it all. Check out the dates, time, prices, and their parking guidelines on their website.
