Some Texas state parks this year will take advantage of Halloween falling on a Sunday just few days after the Oct. 28 full moon by offering a variety of "tricks and treats" for families in the great outdoors.
On Oct. 23, Sam Bell Maxey House State Historic Site in northeast Texas will host quilting activities and a quilt exhibition in conjunction with the City of Paris’ annual Festival of Pumpkins. Park visitors will be able to quilt a few stitches on the Festival of Pumpkins 2004 quilt, which will be on display through Thanksgiving. The quilt festival hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Historic quilts belonging to the Maxey family will be displayed for the entire month of October inside the 1868 Victorian-style home of the former Confederate general and U.S. Senator. Call (903) 785-5716 for more information.
How about saddling up a camel for a special overnight trek at Monahans Sandhills State Park west of Odessa?
