For Austinites, Halloween means hayrides, haunted houses and, of course, trick or treating! The spookiest time of year is right around the corner, and we've put together a list of family-friendly Halloween 2013 events happening all around the Austin area. Since Halloween falls on a Thursday this year, most of the fun is going on the weekend before. Austin area museums like the Bob Bullock Museum and the Texas Natural Science Center are hosting Halloween-themed activities that are both fun and educational. Kids will especially enjoy the Trick or Treat Village and hayride at Georgetown's Halloween Hayride and Carnival. If you're feeling brave, be sure to take part in the frightening Quest of the Haunted Trails at Pioneer Farms. Costumes are encouraged for nearly all the events on our list, so don't be afraid to dress up!
