Halloween in Fort Worth. Food, entertainment, costumes and candy.

Here are a few of the Halloween-themed parties and events I have noticed this year. If you have one you particularly like, let me know. The indented quotes are from the respective websites.  Please confirm the dates and times.

October 31 / Halloween
"Come in after 6pm this Halloween dressed as a horrifying processed food product and we'll give you a burrito, bowl, salad, or an order of tacos filled with freshly cooked, naturally raised ingredients for only $2."
Central Market
Children -- Saturday, Oct. 30 – 2:30-5 p.m.
Adults -- Saturday Oct. 30 7:30 p.m.
"Bring your little ghosts and goblins down to Central Market Fort Worth for a cauldron-full of fun! Grab a scavenger hunt map and start out at the main entrance. You'll wind your way through the store, stopping at each Scavenger Hunt station to figure out a trick – and get a treat! Once you've visited all 7 stations, make your way out to the patio for our Bean Bag Toss, Cookie Decorating, Cake Walk and Costume Parade. We'll have treats galore and tons of fun for the kids at Central Market's annual Halloween Carnival.

Moms and Dads will want to hang around for our last night of live music on the patio of the 2010 season, featuring original rockin’ blues from Dave Millsap, 7-9:30 p.m."
Uncle Julio's

Children are welcome to wear Halloween costumes and enjoy of night of safe, fun-filled activities. This year's Boo at the Zoo features more than 10 treat stations, live animal presentations, a hay maze, live musical acts and much more!"
"Last year's 20's theme was a hit, so Scat Jazz Lounge is doing it again! And, they're upping the ante by bringing in the Sinapore Slingers Orchestra - THE band for this era! Costume contest, flapper girls, mobsters, and no prohibition. Scat becomes the Speakeasy it's really always been for this one-of-a-kind Halloween party. The fun gets underway at 9 p.m."
