Our 7th Annual Houston Halloween Festival will be taking place on Saturday, October 21, 2017, 5 pm to 10pm, on 19th Street in the Houston Heights. The festival will feature entertainment and activities for the entire family including live music, beer gardens, artist & business vendors, food trucks, a costume contest and a large Kids Zone for our youngest ghosts and ghouls. The kid’s zone will include a pumpkin patch, magician & juggling performances, carnival games, spin art, Halloween arts and crafts, kids cartoon characters, face painting, trick or treating, a kids costume contest and much more! The festival provides a fun and safe community environment for Houston families to celebrate Halloween. Last year, the festival had 7,000 participants and the HZW anticipates over 8,000 in 2017.
