Fall & Halloween Activities in Katy TX

Katy TX HalloweenWe’re more than halfway through October, which means Halloween is just around the corner! It will look different this year, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still great ways to get out of the house and enjoy the fall season in and around Katy TX. As your Katy real estate agent, I came up with this list so you can choose the activities that sound best to you!

3.  Schedule a painting class with Pinot’s Palette and paint a beautiful fall photo! There are numerous pumpkin paintings, a jack-o-lantern with a black cat, a haunted house, and numerous Halloween day and night options! Check out the calendar and book your favorite.

4.  The NFF Texas 5K is happening virtually this year in Katy TX. Support NFF, Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation, by registering and running the race virtually. You will still receive a runners bag with a shirt, bib, medal and more when you sign up. Post pictures with the event hashtag!

5.  Cane Island has multiple ways for its residents to celebrate Halloween this year. Oct. 24 is a Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat event from 3-6 p.m., and Oct. 28 is a Virtual Toddler Halloween Jam. Kids can wear their costumes and meet characters over Zoom, with games, stories and songs.

7.  Tickets are on sale for Halloween Town in Sugar Land on Oct. 31. This event includes a costume parade, vendors, games, a Halloween movie and more at Constellation Field. Masks are required and temperature checks will take place upon entry.

Katy is a city located in Harris, Fort Bend and Waller Counties in the U.S. state of Texas, within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area. The population was 11,775 at the 2000 census.

Katy, suburb of Houston, Texas, is named for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (commonly referred to as the "K-T Railroad", now a part of Union Pacific) that ran through Katy in the 19th century. Katy was once known as Cane Island. The name is derived from Cane Island Creek which runs just west of downtown. Cane Creek is a branch of Buffalo Bayou. The origins of the name Cane Island are believed to be from the fact that Katy was once a major sugar cane producer and rice producer. To commermorate the importance of rice to the Katy community, the Chamber of Commerce holds the Rice Harvest Festival every second weekend of October.

Katy was recently the location of one of the ten large red balloons in the DARPA Network Challenge on December 5, 2009. The balloon was stationed in Katy Park.

In 2009 the Gadberry Group named Katy as one of nine "9 from 2009" most notable high growth areas in the United States.
After a low income apartment complex was proposed for development in an adjacent unincorporated area, in 2010 the Katy City Council passed a resolution stating that the development would decrease property values.[5] The plans for the complex were canceled.
