The Halloween night event offers hayrides to scattered sites where trick-or-treaters will be regaled with tales ranging from "family friendly" to "downright creepy." (Families with younger or more sensitive children will have a chance to use their discretion.)
Costumes are of course encouraged; historical ones doubly so, so start getting those pint-sized Sam Houston Cherokee robes and Jane Long gingham dresses ready now. Or maybe go for something less Texcentric and more terrifying like one of these vintage Halloween costumes:
The George Ranch is a 423-acre historical park featuring four historic homes dating from the 1830s to the 1930s, costumed presenters, and an escape from oil-based Texas and the hurly-burly of modern Houston to the days when cotton and cattle were king and life was more laid-back.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for kids 5 to 15, and $5 for under-fives. The event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. Halloween night, and the George Ranch is located at 10215 FM 762 in Richmond.
