Houston Is Throwing A Free Halloween Party With A Citywide Costume Contest

Just don't dress up as a clown, and we'll be alright.
Scream On The Green In Houston Is Having A Free Costume Contest

If you've been thinking of a halloween costume, but no where to go yet, we've got you. Scream on the Green has become a Halloween tradition for Houston, and if you haven't heard of it yet then you're in for a surprise. It's totally free!

Discovery Green in downtown Houston is hosting their annual Scream on the Green on October 25th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and one of the main attractions for this event is a citywide costume contest. Did you know that you and your dog can both enter?

The costume contest is split into several different categories separated by age, so everyone will be in the halloween spirit.  The costume contest registration begins at 6:45 p.m., and show time is at 7 p.m. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place all get prizes.

After the costume contest, Discovery Green will be projecting the movie The House With The Clock in its Walls for a perfect spooky date night. The movie begins at 7:30 p.m. so don't be late! Make sure you grab a blanket to sit on and bring a bag of popcorn to share. Discovery Green also has a couple of restaurant options just in case you do forget your snacks.

Scream on the Green will feature all kinds of tricks and treats like Scary-oke and readings from real fortune tellers. You may look into their crystal ball and see yourself winning that costume contest. I mean, winning is why you're going. Right?

If you can't make it, maybe check out Houston's Halloween Fest happening the weekend before. Halloween only comes once a year, so we have to make the most of it.
