Five Dallas Halloween Events to Warm You Up for October 31
A supremely good costume from last year's Halloween Block Party
Besides having more than one plate of fried chicken skin at the State Fair of Texas, there are some good scares in Dallas for Halloween. The events range from family-friendly strolls through autumnal gardens to holy-shit-that-zombie's-gonna-eat-me scary. Luckily, we've culled those events in one happy place for you over in our calendar section.
In the meantime, here are a few picks we think you should stop by before Michael Myers decapitates you.

Halloween Block Party
Saturday, October 29
