When the month of October rolls around, fall is in full swing, and local storefronts are adorned with delightfully festive decor. Goblins and ghouls are coming out of the shadows and kids are preparing the final touches of their costumes. This October, stay with us at Tanglewood Resort on Lake Texoma and join in all of the festive fall activities to get into the spooky spirit!
Picking Out The Perfect Pumpkin
A tradition that many families take part in each year is bringing the kids to the local farmers market or “pick your own” patch to find the perfect pumpkin. Sifting through all of them to find that perfect shape and shade of orange, you watch the excitement and determination on your child’s face as they pull out “the one.” Visit Elves Farm Pumpkin Patch in Denison or Wild Berry Farm in Sadler for the experience of wandering out into the open fields and have access to a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Spend the day exploring all of the activities like petting farms, corn mazes, jack-o-lantern carving, and more. You cannot go wrong with either of these fun fall farm experiences.
A Haunting Experience
As the spookiest season is coming into full effect, it is natural to find a frightening experience to send shivers down your spine. During your stay at Lake Texoma resorts like Tanglewood Resort, there are a few terrifying things in the area that are sure to have you shaking in your boots. The Haunted Denison Ghost Tour is a weekend event that will take you through the historic streets and highlight some of its most gruesome historical happenings. Keep your eyes open, for you may even see a real ghost lurking in the shadows! For an even more frightening affair, take a short drive to Sherman, Texas to the Hatch and Kraven’s Slaughterhouse. This haunted house is full of the scariest of monstrosities. Put your bravery to the test as you make your way through a genuinely haunting experience for a night of monster-ous proportion.
