It's one of the best times of the year when everyone gets all dressed up in crazy costumes and children flood the streets on the hunt for delicious treats across the community.

I love trick or treat, but sometimes those communities get "oversaturated" with people. Wouldn't it be nice to take your family to do something else besides waiting in line at a stranger's house and not even for a full size candy bar?

Well, I've put together a list of some events going on in Central Texas for this Halloweekend.
