Check Out These Awesome Houston Halloween Events Happening in 2022

Fun filled Houston Halloween events in 2022

Houston is always haunted by the hazy, sticky air and murky bayou that creeps through the ancient city. However, things get increasingly scary around Halloween, when ghost tours and spirits glimpses into the city’s unearthly history become popular. There are also incredibly gorgeous doggie costume contests and somewhat less attractive human costume contests, so it’s not all scary. This year’s Halloweekend festivities will feature live music, flowing boo-ze, pumpkin smashing, and moon-howlin’ dance parties that will last far beyond your customary bedtime. Here’s what to do in Houston this #SpookySzn.

Truck Parking Houston Trucking Company Cocktails & Cauldrons in Houston
Saturday, October 29 Truck Yard “Cauldron Cocktails,” free candy for kids (and hey, if you want, for you, too), pumpkin smashing, canine and human costume contests, and a live fortune teller are all in the bag of tricks at Truck Yard’s annual Halloween time extravaganza, which runs all day and night. Costume contests begin at 6 p.m. for dogs and 9 p.m. for humans; register on-site at least one hour ahead of time, with check-in beginning 30 minutes before.

A boozy 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. bar tour at White Oak faves including Little Woodrow’s, BB’s, Public House, Christian’s Tailgate, Permission Whiskey, Onion Creek, Russos, and Bobcat Teddy’s will give you a scare in the Heights. At each location, there will be something to collect, and the crawl will culminate with an afterparty and costume contest at Bobcat Teddy’s.
Attendance is completely free.

Pistolero’s Montrose Crawl
Lower Westheimer on Saturday, October 29
Houston’s oddest costume crawl has risen from the dead after a few years in the graves. The traditional pub crawl begins with a pregame at La Grange and Poison Girl between 7 and 8 p.m., then moves on to Pistolero’s and Boondocks (8 to 10 p.m.), Catbirds, and Present Company (10 to whenever you damn please but before the bars close at 2 am).

“No sponsors, no tickets, just a good time.”
