Fun Halloween Events in Brown County

Welcome Back!

Autumn is one of the best times of year for spending quality time with friends and family. Brown County, and the surrounding area, is a beautiful place made better by an active and friendly community. We’re so excited for all the Fall fun that we went ahead and made a list of 5 of the (mostly) Halloween events we’re looking forward to in the coming weeks – though these are by no means the only events happening in Brown County! Without further ado, we present:

 house-and-hunt events

October 19th & 20th, 26th & 27th, 7 pm to 11 pm                                                  Brown County Museum of History 209 N Broadway Street, Brownwood

There’s nothing quite like a haunted house when it comes to Halloween fun. This fundraiser for the Brown County Museum of History provides you with options. The clown-themed haunted house will scare the pants off of any brave souls who dare to go in. For younger or more timid individuals, we suggest you get in the spirit with the just-a-little-spooky, family-friendly Scavenger Hunt.

lock-in

October 26th @ 7 PM to October 27th @ 7 AM | 300 Early Blvd Suite 100A, Early

If you have kids 8 years or older, then they’ll probably love going to the Halloween Lock-in at Gator’s Fun Factory. Kids will enjoy a scream contest, mummy wrap games, “witch’s brew”, skating, and a costume contest where the winner will take home a 12-month free skating pass. For the parents left at home that evening, we suggest using this brief respite to enjoy a little Saturday night rest and recuperation.

escape-the-museum halloween fun

October 27th & 31st, 5 PM to 9 PM | 700 E Adams, Brownwood

The Lehnis Railroad Museum is hosting its first ever Halloween event, and we cannot wait! Guests will be trying to escape from the hexes of “Roundhouse Rose”, who was “trapped in the museum by conductor Lehnis”. The museum staff drew from murder mysteries, escape rooms, and treasure hunts to create the challenge and it sounds like a blast!
trick-or-treat fun

October 31st, 5 PM to 7 PM | Depot Plaza, 600 E. Depot Street, Brownwood

We recommend the annual Trick or Treat Trail as your first stop this All Hallow’s Eve. Local business and organizations will gather in Depot Plaza to provide candy, games, goodies and fun activities. Also, don’t forget to wear your costume and sign up for to compete for a trophy in one of 6 categories.

hpu-football

November 2nd & 3rd | Gordon Wood Stadium, 3206 Milam Drive, Brownwood

Once the Halloween fun is over, we’ve got the rest of the season to pursue other Fall activities. And, let’s be honest, it’s not fall in Texas without football. Lucky for us, we’ve got our own college team right here in Brownwood. The Howard Payne Homecoming game is in just a few weeks and we’re ready to break out our HPU gear and cheer on the Yellow Jackets. The game isn’t the only thing happening that weekend either; the University has an entire carnival planned that includes a nightly play, a bonfire, fireworks, the parade, games, and tailgating. Count us in!

Check back with us later for Halloween decorating tips and more events coming up in November!
