It is the time of year again for costume shopping, pumpkin carving and scary movies. This Halloween season, enjoy the fall weather with a stroll through the Dallas Arboretum or a heart-racing trip to the Cutting Edge Haunted House in Fort Worth. There is something in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for everyone this Halloween.

For all those who would rather spend this Halloween focused on fitness rather than on sweets, Fort Worth mayor Betsy Price is hosting the Spooky Bike and Ball at the Fort Worth Water Gardens. On Thursday at 6:00 p.m., participants can bike eight miles from the Water Gardens to the Oakwood Cemetery and back. After the ride, there will be a Halloween party with live music and food trucks.

For all the film enthusiasts out there looking for the perfect film to celebrate Halloween, the Angelika Film Center will host the last installment of its “Hitchocktober” movie series on Thursday at 8:00 p.m. The outdoor screening will feature the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock film “Dial M for Murder.”

To close the week, you can attend a showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show at midnight at the Lakewood Theater. Tickets are $10 apiece and prop packs are $4.

For those wanting to continue the Halloween festivities, visiting a haunted house is the right route to take. The Strangling Brothers Haunted Circus is located at the Irving Mall. This haunted attraction will take you through an abandoned circus maze and make the hair on your arms stand up. Tickets are sold for $32.48 each.

Another option is the Cutting Edge Haunted House in Fort Worth. The attraction is located in an abandoned meatpacking plant and has been voted one of the best haunted houses in the country by hauntedworld.com. Tickets are available for $29.95 each.

Don’t let the festivities for this Halloween season escape you. Get out and experience Halloween Dallas-style.
