The City of Keller will offer several events — “with different options for different people” — for Halloween festivities the weekend before the holiday.
First, Friday evening is Keller’s “Pumpkin Splash,” with its floating pumpkin patch at The Keller Pointe’s indoor pool from 6-8 p.m.. The cost is $10 in advance, $14 at the door per participant. It will also have some arts and crafts, games and “a fun atmosphere,” said Rachel Reynolds, the city’s public information officer.
For a drier, scarier event, Keller will have its “Haunted Trails” begin at the south end of the Bear Creek Greenbelt trail Saturday evening from 7-9:30 p.m. The cost is $5 for adults, $3 for children 12 and under. Hayrides will bring back groups after they finish the trail, which was rained out last year but usually attracts hundreds, Reynolds said. It may be scary for young children.
If you are interested in volunteering for the “Haunted Trails” scare stations, call Hillary Dunegan at 817-743-4050.
For the younger ones, the Spooky Kooky Keller Kastle will offer some free fun for kids 10 and under Sunday from 1-5 p.m. at Johnson Road Park. A spooky castle, carnival games and candy are on the schedule, and kids are encouraged to wear their costumes.
The Keller Public Library’s weekly “Storytime” will include a Halloween costume “fashion show.” “Monster Mash Storytime” for the kids is from 6-6:30 p.m. Monday at the library.
