There is lots going on this weekend in Grapevine with Halloween being the first of next week. Check out these possibilities:
Friday night – Showing of Ghostbusters at the Palace Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. As always, tickets are $5 apiece. Don’t forget to have dinner before the movie at a local Grapevine restaurant so you can get free popcorn!
Saturday – Hallo-Wine Trail. Tastings at each winery in town, plus a souvenier glass and a bottle of wine, for $45 in advance or $50 the day of the event. You start at Cross Timbers winery and then can walk to all the others which are located near downtown Grapevine. Speaking of Cross Timbers, check out this story on resident ghosts in the more-than-100-years-old house. Nothing like a good ghost story to spice up Halloween weekend!
Saturday– This is unrelated to Halloween, but the Grapevine Trash & Treasures Waterway Clean-Up will be held on Saturday, October 29 from 8-11 a.m. with a picnic from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at 2700 Darren Medlin Dr, Grapevine, TX 76051 (register at Trawick Pavilion at Lake Grapevine to receive supplies and assignments). Volunteers will look for sparkling mardi gras beads along the shoreline. One lucky winner will find the beads for the grand prize – Kayaking Package – includes a Daytripper 10 kayak, vest and paddle. Lots of other prizes, too.
Saturday night – The GrapeYard, a new event hosted by the Grapevine Parks and Rec Department. The GrapeYard will be held at the Vineyards Campgrounds on Lake Grapevine (1501 N. Dooley). Time is from 6:30 to 9:30 and the event is free to Grapevine residents ($5 per car for non-residents). Costumes are welcome and food and drinks will be available for purchase. Activities are “witch’s tales” and “creepy critters” and other things which I am not sure how to identify, but there is no doubt it will be good, scary family fun.
Sunday – At the British Emporium, British Car and Motorcycle Show and Haunted Tearoom from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The British Emporium is located at 140 N. Main Street. The event is free but partygoers are asked to bring a can of food to donate to the GRACE pantry.
I would suggest places to watch the World Series on Friday night as well (just in case Ghostbusters isn’t your thing), but I have faith in our TEXAS RANGERS that they will wrap it up tonight! Who’s with me?
