Spindletop Spookfest, Oct 29

For a fun, safe place to Trick or Treat for Halloween, come to Spindletop Spookfest. Tues., Oct. 29, from 5 – 7 p.m., families can enjoy games, fun and, of course, candy, all for free.

“This is one of my favorite events, because families dress up and enjoy themselves at the museum,” said Troy Gray, director of the Spindletop Gladys City Museum.

Lamar University students lead children in games such as Halloween pong, stick horse racing, pumpkin bowling and other fun activities. In order to ensure the safety of everyone, adults are asked not to wear masks.

Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown is a replica of the boomtown that grew up around the Spindletop oil fields in the early 1900s. The entrance fee is $5 for adults; $3 for senior citizens; and $2 for children under 12. Spindletop Gladys City Boomtown Museum is located on the corner of Jimmy Simmons Boulevard and Cardinal Drive on the Lamar University campus. The Museum is open Tues. – Sat. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sun.1 – 5 p.m.  For more information, please call 409-880-1750, visit https://www.lamar.edu/spindletop-gladys-city/index.html or email at gladyscityinfo@gmail.com.
