The sights and sounds of Boo on the Boardwalk can be found at the Dungeon of Doom Haunted House and the Little Boo Haunted Fun House. Pumpkin decorating, costume contests, music, and trick or treating is also available for young and old tricksters. A Costume Contest for ages 12 and under will be held October 19th and 26th; kids will have a chance to win some great prizes.

The Kemah Lighthouse Maze, located at 409 Bradford Avenue in Kemah, has been transformed into Kemah’s Little House of Horrors. The 10,000 square foot attraction is advertised as: “Not for Young Children”. Those who want to brave the maze will find an elevated catwalk, and outdoor cemetery and much more. There are early exits if someone gets too scared; those who brave the entire maze will emerge at the Kemah Picnic Park. Kemah’s Little House of Horrors is open on Thursday-Sunday from 6pm to midnight through October 31st. For more information about Kemah’s Little House of Horrors, click on the image above.

Dickinson Festival of Lights Begin Shining on November 26th
Posted In: Dickinson News | Events & Attractions Posted by Pam Moore on 11/16/2012

By Pam Moore for Brockway Realty

Beginning on the evening of November 26 and ending on the evening of January 1st (2013), Dickinson Festival of Lights invite you to enjoy their holiday celebration! A community of retirees, business men and women, and high school students has been getting together since 2003 to put together this amazing spectacle of lights in Paul Hopkins Park.

The festival originally began in a different location in Dickinson, but with the increased popularity and growth of lighting displays, they had to find a much larger place. Now a tradition in Dickinson, many families flock to Paul Hopkins Park to see what is new every year, take photos, and leisurely walk through the myriad of holiday lights. While visiting the festival you can hear holiday music, enjoy a hot cup of cocoa or a snack, purchase a blinky-light trinket, decorate a cookie, or visit with Santa Claus! This local attraction is definitely a labor of love, and there is NO admission charge.

Because of the festival’s popularity, parking started to become an issue at Paul Hopkins Park, so a FREE shuttle bus service was started to help get people in and out to enjoy the lights without a hassle. You can park free of charge at the Dickinson Plaza Shopping Center (Exit 19-Hwy 517) I-45 feeder Road. The shuttle runs at regular intervals and Dickinson Police Officers usually help with traffic control. You can find more information about parking HERE.

Many years ago, I took this photo of the men very close to my heart. The winding tunnel of lights was my son’s favorite section at that time. When he was much younger, he was brave enough to tell Santa his “secret wishes”.

For more information about the Dickinson Festival of Lights, please visit their website:  www.dickinsonfestivaloflights.org .When you visit, please look for the donation boxes and help support this free attraction so the displays may continue to delight both young and old for many years to come.

A Salute to Veterans in the Bay Area

Not many people know I am a U.S. Air Force Veteran. I am pleased to know there are many Veterans Day celebrations scheduled in our area, so I have put together a list of the many different activities planned in the Bay Area either on Veterans Day, or before Veterans Day. As you will see, there are a variety of ways you can help pay tribute to those who have served in the armed forces and their families.

League City– The City of League City will honor local veterans, servicemen and women, and their families on November 12, 2012 at Chester L. Davis Sportsplex, located at 1251 League City Parkway, at 10 am. During the Veterans Day ceremony, a piece of art entitled “Most Precious Offering” will be presented to the City by local artist, Saundra Whiddon.

St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church, located at 2508 St. Christopher Ave, League City, will honor veterans on November 11, at 10:30 am. All military veterans and their families are invited to attend the service and old-fashioned picnic on the church grounds.
