Sugar Land’s most anticipated annual events are on the horizon.
All of the events are fun, festive, located within the city of Sugar Land and specifically designed with the Sugar Land community and residents in mind.
On Sunday, Oct. 28, from 2-6 p.m., Sugar Land Town Square will transform into Halloween Town for just one evening. With a focus on Sugar Land residents and creating an atmosphere for neighbors to gather as one big family, festive Halloween characters will roam Town Square inviting children to participate in activities. People and pets in their Halloween best are invited to enter Halloween Town’s costume contest in the following categories:
Pets at 2:30 p.m., Children 3 and under at 3 p.m., children 4-7 at 3:30 p.m., children 8-11 at 4 p.m., children 12 and up at 4:30 p.m., and groups at 5 p.m.
Admission is open to the public, and the popular costume contest is free for residents. Non-residents will be charged a $3 fee to enter into the costume contest. Just remember, Halloween Town is for friendly ghosts, goblins, and ghouls, so no blood or gruesome horror costumes. Onsite registration is very limited so get a jump-start and register online. Sign up children or pets using the contest entry form at www.sugarlandtx.gov/halloweentown.
Parking is available in the Texas and Lone Star garages. A free shuttle service will be available from Mercer Stadium, 16403 Lexington Blvd., to Sugar Land Town Square during the hours of the event. Participants are encouraged to take advantage of the shuttle buses due to street closures throughout the square area during the event.
