Upcoming Events: October Edition

Catch a glimpse of these fantastic fall events and Halloween happenings.

Haunted Shadows

Haunted Shadows Lake Trail brings you one of the scariest haunted experiences around DFW.

A PG-rated experience is available upon request for younger thrill seekers.

Outdoor Concerts
