302. Spooktacular at the Texas State History Museum

October 29, 2010

I found myself thinking and thinking over today’s post (like yesterday) as there is just so much happening going on around Austin, apparently like me, Austin likes to celebrate Halloween.

I finally decided on this free activity because well, it is free and the Spooltacular at the Bob Bullock Museum has become an Austin Annual Event, not to mention there is always fun to be had there.

I don’t do haunted houses but they had me at “spooky tour of the Museum” as the idea is very Night at the Museum to me.  That is just the start to all the activities going on tonight.  They will also be having a meet the author/book signing with the author who wrote Haunted Austin: History and Hauntings in the Capital City. While scary stuff isn’t my thing there is something oddly intriguing about ghost stories and haunted tales of where you spend your everyday life, plus it’s the season for scary might as well revel in it.

 

Here the schedule of events tonight so that you can plan accordingly. Get your best Halloween Get Up on because they have a costume contest with prizes.

6 p.m.–Creepy Crafting Begins
6-7 p.m.–Book signing with Jeanine Plumer
6:30-8:30 p.m.–Face Painting
7 p.m.–Blue Lapis Light performance (this part is not free)
8 and 8:30 p.m.–Spooky Tours
7:45 p.m.–Costume Contest and Prizes

Adults looking for fun, venture downtown. Basically every bar is having some kind of special or event in light of Halloween so it will not be hard to find some trouble to get into.
