Even though fall in Texas might not mean much change in weather, it does bring brand new events and festivities in Denton County! Whether you want to keep attending weekly events that have been happening throughout the summer, like the Denton Community Market or Yoga on the Plaza or try something completely new (did someone say coffin races and Halloween concerts), October is not short of thrilling and SPOOKtacular events!
