Get an early start on your trick-or-treating at the Annual Downtown Halloween Spooktacular, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 29, from 3:30 to 6:30p.m. in historic Downtown New Braunfels. Downtown merchants will be providing candy, and there will also be children's costume contest and family activities!

If you’re outside New Braunfels, there are a few more Hill Country Halloween events to enjoy:
Instead of gorging yourself on all that candy, take in some Hill Country scenery instead! Twin Elm Guest Ranch is hosting a Halloween Hike on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 6:30 to 9:30pm
Or, head to Bandera for their Annual Hunter's Game Dinner & Dance on Saturday, Oct. 31.
Comfort’s Muleshoe Farm & Ranch is the home of this year’s Harvest Moon Celebration on Halloween, starting at noon. With music, activities, and entertainment for the whole family, it’s sure to be a great time for all. And, because it starts at noon, you’ll have plenty of time to get back to New Braunfels.
And once you do, you’ll want to take a ride over to Vintage Oaks. Fall is the ideal time to tour the Hill Country’s fastest-growing community and see all that’s going on, from new Texas land releases like Deer Creek to New Braunfels homes for sale at The Reserve. Don’t forget to visit the resort-style amenities and take a minute to drink in the Hill Country views at Timber Ridge Park.
