Halloween is just not what it used to be … at least in my eyes. But with the decline, it seems, of kids making the neighborhood rounds to scare up treats, Halloween festivities focus more on interesting events as an alternative. There surely will be lots going on Saturday, which is Halloween, to celebrate the ghoul inside all of us, but a unique event this Halloween night is to pair a monster mudbath with monstrously large vehicles and get the kids watching. That’s the plan for what’s being billed as the 1st Annual Halloween Mudfest at the Four States Fair Entertainment Center in Texarkana. The Four States Fair and Red River Mudbog teamed up to get this event rolling; the doors open at 5 p.m. that night with a “Trick or Teat” and meet-the-drivers event. Then the mud show starts at 7 p.m. Kids 12 and under can compete in a costume contest. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids. More info: 870-773-2941. So go get your Halloween freak on … in the mud.
