El Paso Not The Best Halloween City In Texas? I Think Not
Christmas & Halloween are two of the biggest holidays celebrated in El Paso. No doubt about it. We see some amazing decorations, some truly fantastic costumes & we gawk over our favorite horror movies to watch during Halloween. Also we're not afraid to combine the two holidays to show off some... "Spookmas" decorations.
We see it every year & we enjoy it. So El Paso should be one of the best Halloween cities in Texas....right?
According to this list of the best Halloween cities in the state of Texas, there are 6 locations in the state:
- Fort Worth
- & Bastrop
Now to be fair... Bastrop IS the location where they shot some the scenes for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. So I can understand that... BUT HOW CAN YOU NOT INCLUDE EL PASO?
Every year we have a Halloween Parade, we have tons of different Haunted Houses open for Halloween, many people hold their OWN Halloween events. We got absolutely MAD whenever a new Spirit Halloween store opens up.... this is a city where Halloween is a truly sacred time for celebration.
And need I remind you that El Paso is HAUNTED? We host ghost tours all the time & we love visiting haunted locations...
Also I don't think I need to mention but Bastrop isn't the only TX city with a well known murderer. *cough* Richard Ramirez *cough*. So those creepy vibes are absolutely here when felt around Concordia cemetery.
Now I don't mean any disrespect to any of the previously mentioned Texas cities, but come on... when you put "best Halloween cities" together, you HAVE to mention El Paso. We love our spooky seasons & we'll continue to prove it every year.
