The Haunted Trails: September 30th to November 4th

Cypress, Texas, has taken a spooky turn as werewolves, swamp monsters, and other creepy characters roam The Haunted Trails. They only appear after dark, so wait until 8pm to show up on the trail. Then, ready yourself for thrills and chills as you creep along the pathway, hoping to make it out unscathed. If you come out the other end, try your luck at the Head to Head challenge and then get a souvenir photo with your crew.

What do you get when you combine German cultural explorations with the grandeur of Texas? You get Wurstfest, a memorable journey filled with music, games, and friendship for everyone. This annual event pays homage to New Braunfels’ history as a German settlement and home to many popular sausage makers. It’s the place to go for German brews, sausage galore, and plenty of dancing to the best Bavarian and Alpine music. Since this event offers endless stellar activities, it’s best enjoyed as a weekend extravaganza.

H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade: November 23rd

Now in its 74th year, the H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade is set to yet again come to the heart of Downtown Houston, Texas. As in prior years, it’ll cover over 20 city blocks, filling the cityscape with exquisite floats, high-flying balloons, talented marching bands, and many other entertainers.

Hot Air Balloon Rides: All Fall Season

If you’re a leaf-peeping enthusiast, you definitely need to get the full view by taking a hot air balloon ride over Texas. And that’s easy to do with a call to Austin Aeronauts Hot Air Balloons. You just have to choose between a semi-private and private flight and then book your spot on the balloon. After that, you’ll be ready to go up in the basket with up to six other passengers to see the landscape like never before. Daytime flights are best for seeing the colorful fall leaves but don’t miss out on the chance to go on a night flight to see the sunrise from the sky.  

When you want to experience the autumn bliss in Texas, you cannot go wrong with any of these fantastic events. They’re bound to keep you and your crew happily enjoying all this incredible region offers and making memories to last a lifetime.
