Plan your Halloween: Scary movie night, comics, comedy, burlesque


Halloween falls on a Saturday this year. Don’t drink and drive. Do wear a costume. Here are some ideas:

Leave Saturday to the amateurs and go out on Thursday instead. The Texas Theatre shows “Scream” at 7 p.m. and “The Shining” at 9:45 p.m. Oct. 29.

A pet costume parade at the Dallas Farmers Market starts at 11 a.m. on Halloween. There will be costume prizes: most creative, funniest, scariest, best dog team, best human-pet combo and best impression of a different species.

Red Pegasus Games and Comics hosts a Halloween comics fest, starting at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31.

The Kessler presents “Homage Nation,” wherein performers pay tribute to the masters who inspire them. This year, it’s comics. Twelve local comedians perform 10-minute sets inspired by the likes of Gilda Radner, Bill Hicks, Andy Kaufman and George Carlin.

The Texas Theatre has a burlesque and drag show, “The Evil Queen of Burlesque,” on Halloween night.

CocoAndré Chocolatier hosts a grand re-opening party and Día de los Muertos celebration, in partnership with the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, from 2-7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1.
