Visit the Pumpkin Village, wander the grounds, and watch the colors change daily from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the Dallas Aboretum and Botanical Garden (8525 Garland Rd.).

Pamela Anderson?

Last year, Dallas got down and dirty with costumes. And nowhere outshone the Cedar Springs block party. Of course, that's usually the case in this city. If you want to see Halloween in all its gory glory, you head to the gayborhood for a night of revelry. This year, with Halloween falling on a Friday, we're sure it will be bigger and better than ever. Although glancing back through last year's costumes, we're not sure it will be easy to top. Here are a few of our favorites. All photos by Ed Steele.

This weekend, the longest-running neo-burlesque troupe in DFW is dancing their way through their twisted, sexified Halloween show, arguably their most anticipated show of the year. The sultry members of the Lollie Bombs present "Ghouls! Ghouls! Ghouls!" at 11:15 p.m. Friday and Saturday night at the Pocket Sandwich Theater. It'll be a smorgasbord of deadly dance, showcasing choreography from the likes of E. Hall and Honey Bordeauxx, and hosted by their new emcee, Connor Lingus. (Word to the Lollies virgins: the bottom level of seating is lovingly referred to as the "Splash Zone." Sit there if you're hoping to get hit by whipped cream, glitter, or stray lingerie.)

Featured beauties are versatile, off-the-wall, tattooed, and insanely talented. And did we mention? Halloween eye candy. Buckets full. Meet the ladies who are sure to show you a good time and a whole lot more!

Take flight this weekend with Paul Manes at Cris Worley Fine Arts.

Gallery hopping is not just the pastime of the art collector. It can also be a great way for anyone interested in art to take a peek at what Dallas artists are creating, and gallerists are curating. This weekend, many of the Design District spots have openings, with receptions from 6-8 p.m. worth attending. We recommend you stop by Zhulong Gallery's group show, Systema, Conduit Gallery's show of Vincent Falsetta, Gabriel Dawe, and Sarah Ball, and Cris Worley Fine Art's exhibition of Paul Manes' newest work.

Dallas' Scariest Haunted Houses 2014

Dine with the dead this October...

Things were simpler when we were kids. Responsibilities consisted mainly of remembering to feed the dog, not touching the rat poison under the sink, and leaving dad alone when he's drinking his "grown-up" apple juice in the front yard.

But the absolute best part about being a kid no competition was Halloween. Free candy, horror movie marathons, going to school dressed up like Batman; was anything better than that? Nope.

Yet as we grew older, more and more people decided that a 20-year-old Power Ranger probably didn't need a handful of fun-sized Snickers.

But fear not, fellow travelers of the night, we can still have fun during this most ghoulish of holidays. We can buy our own candy dammit. And beer! In fact, now that I think about it, being a kid kinda sucked.

This Halloween leave the past in the past and celebrate like an adult, by getting the shit scared out of you at one of DFW's spooktacular haunted houses.
