Houston Happenings

HOUSTON — Got plans this weekend? Check out these Houston Happenings.

Funeral Museum Haunted House
Halloween is right around the corner but if you’re looking to get your scare fix in early head over to the 5th annual Halloween haunted house at the National Museum of Funeral History.

Just the name alone has me shaking in my boots. All month long you can get into the Halloween spirit with the family-friendly haunted house. The house will absolutely scare you to death!

Doors are open at 10 am. Tickets range between $3 and $5.

Broadway Cemetery Tours
Want to mix some history to all that scary?

Then the Broadway cemetery tour in Galveston is where you need to be. The cemetery is actually seven cemeteries  that grew together over time. The first graves date back to 1839.

Tours are this Saturday at 9 and 10 am. Tickets are $15.

38th Italian Festival
Grab some heritage at the 38th Houston Italian festival. The festival is on the university of saint Thomas featuring live music and great Italian food! You don’t want to miss out on the poker and bingo tournament and you have to drink some beer at the Italian beer tasting.

The festival started Thursday and runs until Sunday. Tickets range from $6 to $25.

Texas Renaissance festival
The Texas Renaissance festival is back this Saturday and Sunday! Come out and see the magic come to life! Wizards, elves and faeries will lace the streets of new market village. Check out their costume contest and test your taste buds at the dragon wing eating contest.

Tickets range from $11.95 to $23.95 .
