Men on Boats

Halloween in Downtown
Step fright this way, Downtown has some great things to DO. If you’re looking for a monster mash, head to Scat Jazz Lounge for their Roaring 20’s Halloween Party featuring Matt Tolentino and his Seven Piece Band.

Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus will be hosting their annual Trick or Treat Down “Main Street” where families can enjoy candy, games, and fun for all ages down the main hall of their campus. Bird Café is getting into the spirit of the season with their BOOtiful Blooms event. Create your own pumpkin floral arrangement while enjoying a spooky seasonal menu, craft cocktails, and carefully curated craft beer.
