Halloweekend Round-Up

The Halloween fever—not to be mistaken for the zombie fever— is in the air. Goblins, ghouls and superheroes are everywhere. Yesterday, we helped you with your last minute costume, so now all you need is some last minute Allhallowstide (“Halloweekend”) plans. You won’t have to get out of your costume all weekend long if you follow this list:

Friday, Oct. 3o

Spooky Science Carnival 
Join the Science Spectrum & OMNI Theater for a night full of carnival games, prizes, trick-or-treat, the Spooky Scientists Show, spooky lab experiments, the Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 2.29.58 PMHaunted Lab, spooky critters, children and family costume contests, and other spooky-not-scary Halloween activities!

Show up to the stadium in your costume and watch Texas Tech play a 7-0 Oklahoma State team. The Jones is known to get rowdy and cause upsets when playing around Halloween, so this will be a game you won’t want to miss. If you can’t snag tickets to the game, walk next door to The Roof at Raider Park Garage to see the field from a new view and get the Halloween party started with DJ Soulfly.

Nightmare on 19th Street *
Whatever your phobia may be, you will surely find it in the four various themed attractions, alongside raucous performers and an exciting environment at Nightmare on 19th Street.


Sunday, Nov. 1
