Freak out for Halloween

It’s October, which means Halloween, which means queens plotting their sexy, scary, campy and outrageous costumes for the street parade later this month. But it also means you can get yourself psyched up with a visit to a haunted house. North Texas has two good ones: Screams in Waxahachie, and gay-owned Dark Hour Haunted House in Plano. Either one should chill you to your bones.

Screams, RenFest fairgrounds, 2511 FM 66, Waxahachie.
Dark Hour Haunted House, 701 Taylor Drive, Plano.
