The House of Torment is open every weekend from the end of September to the beginning of November.  Located by Highland Mall in Austin, tickets cost $25 per person for general admission and $35 for the VIP fast pass. The House of Torment has made lasting impressions on teens in the Austin area, many of whom claim it to be one of the most frightening and exciting Halloween activities.

Austin City Limits is a music festival known by people all around the world, and treasured by many Austin inhabitants; coloring the creative, original side of Austin, and enticing many tourists to make it their travel destination. They don’t call Austin, The Music Capital of the World, for nothing.

 In the month of October, there are many football games that stem from rivalries, one of the most anticipated being between UT and Oklahoma. So if you enjoy a little friendly competition and want to show a bit of Texas pride this event is the place to be this month!

The Texas State fair is an iconic event that has been going on since 1886. Though it is in Dallas, you will find many devoted Austinites at this exciting family oriented show-your-spirit event. General admission at the gate is $17, online $15 per person and it is open 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on weekends excluding Sundays. (Sunday-Thursday open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.)

 The annual Georgetown haunted hayride is a laid back, kid-friendly atmosphere with a splash of typical Halloween fun. On Oct. 28 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Georgetown Community Center there will be of course a hayride, but a costume contest and trick or treat village as well.
