What’s on Halloween weekend in Tuscaloosa

Table of Contents

Dozens of trick-or-treaters gathered Wednesday for separate Halloween events at the Alabama Museum of Natural History on the University of Alabama campus and the Gateway Innovation and Discovery Center in Alberta.

The Haunting at the Museum and the city of Tuscaloosa’s Tech or Treat offered kids a chance to dress up in costumes and collect lots of candy, but Halloween isn’t over in Tuscaloosa.

Halloween isn’t until Monday, but this weekend will give young ghouls, ghouls and goblins plenty of opportunities for spooky fun.

Here’s what’s happening over the three-day Halloween weekend:


Boo! at the Park and Touch-a-Truck will be from 9 a.m. to noon, with free admission to Sokol Park, hosted by the Tuscaloosa County Park and Recreation Authority. The Touch-a-Truck event will include a sensory-friendly “quiet time” (no sirens, etc.) from 9 to 10 a.m., followed by an exploration of all types of vehicles from 10 to noon. Vehicles will include heavy equipment/machinery, tractors, fire engines, cars and trucks. The annual Boo! will be held concurrently in the park and will consist of carnival games, candy and more. The Tuscaloosa Police Department plans to join in with its helicopter and K-9; Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter and Tuscaloosa Public Library will also donate. www.tcpara.org.
