Goblins, witches, superheroes and monsters, get your costumes ready. Glen Rose does Halloween up in style and you're the stars of the show.
Cherokee Rose will kick off the Halloween festivities with a trick-or-treat for the kids, haunted house and monster bash from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28. The event will be held throughout the facility and residents get in on the action, too, wearing costumes and handing out candy.
Once again Project "Safe Treat" will be held downtown on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 4 to 6 p.m. Bring the kids - adults can wear costumes, too - and visit the shops and organizations along Barnard Street and around the square for great treats and maybe a few tricks.
Project Safe Treat is sponsored by Texas AgriLife Extension Family & Consumer Science Committee, the Glen Rose/Somevell County Chamber of Commerce, the Glen Rose Downtown Association and Glen Rose Medical Center.
Then head down to the Somervell County Citizens Center for a barbecue dinner and live music from 6 to 8 p.m. Barbecue plates are $10 ($7 for kids 12 and under).
That night, there's more spooky spots at the Haunted Hike and Halloween Celebration from 6 to 10 p.m. at Dinosaur Valley State Park. For more information, visit www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/dinosaur_valley or call 254-897-4588.
Then on Halloween Day, Monday, Oct. 31, children ages 3 to 12 can get in free at Dinosaur World if they wear their costumes. For safety reasons, children must be accompanied by an adult.
"Dinosaur World is about family fun and is fun for sure," said Nicole Randall, Dinosaur World's marketing director. "This is another opportunity for Dinosaur World to connect with our neighbors and be a contributing member of the communities in which we operate."
