What does a dentist in Bedford do when not treating patients? With Halloween just around the corner, it’s a great chance to talk about the seasonal events in the Mid-Cities that our team enjoys the most.
Halloween Around Bedford
Hall’s Pumpkin Farm
If you haven’t made your jack-o’-lanterns yet, there’s still time to fetch some pumpkins that are prime for carving at Hall’s Pumpkin Farm. You’ll find more than your regular large, round, orange pumpkins—they have all kinds of shapes and sizes. We found pumpkins that were white, and some that were greenish, brainy-looking abominations that would just be terrific for Halloween displays.
Hall’s is more than just gourds. A mere $5 (a better rate than most around here) gets you into their labyrinth, a two-acre cornfield full of twists and turns. It is especially fun at night, but don’t forget your flashlight. If your group succumbs to failure, don’t worry—guides patrol the maze to lead you out, or even just give you a helpful hint.
If corn mazes don’t get your adrenaline pumping the way you’d like, then Moxley Manor may be more your style. The team running this indoor haunted house of horrors has committed actors and strives to create an authentic (and utterly terrifying) experience. They’ve worked on improving the experience every year, and it has paid off, particularly with a unique, 3-D clown scene.
It’s the best haunted house in town, but given its popularity and with Halloween almost here, be prepared to wait in long lines. You can pay an extra fee for a VIP pass and get to the front much faster.
For some well-rounded Halloween fun, you’ll find some of our team at the Oak Grove Soccer Complex for GrapeYard 2017. Test your skill at some old-school carnival games, or test your mettle on the haunted trail (*ghost noises*). You’ll find games, glow-in-the-dark archery, wagon rides, bounce houses, laser tag, yummy food, and a whole lot more! This is a great family event, and you can get your tickets for as low as $2 using coupon code GPVRES.
Who says trick-or-treating is just for kids? Get over to Grapevine October 28–29, and you’ll be able to ditch the candy for Hallo-Wine. Eight wineries will set up tasting rooms around Grapevine’s Historic Downtown District, and you can sample three wines and a food pairing at each station. Take a short, leisurely stroll in between, and don’t forget your costume! Get your tickets here.
If your children come back from trick-or-treating with a horde of candy, consider helping them donate the excess to our troops. Our friends over at Groves Orthodontics offer a candy buyback, and they will give the kids $1 for each pound of unopened candy they donate.
Celebrating Fall in Tarrant County
