From Texas Tech University:

The National Ranching Heritage Center at Texas Tech University will host an old-fashioned Harvest Festival from 4 to 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26, during the 6th annual Heritage Halloween event. Visitors of all ages can take part free of charge.

Trick-or-Treaters can fill their bags with period-correct treats as they visit several of the historic structures at the NRHC. Also offered are $1 hayrides through the park, a cakewalk at the McLaughlin Arbor, fall crafts in the 6666 Barn and more.

"Heritage Halloween is an opportunity for children to enjoy the holiday in a safe and educational way," said event coordinator and Manager of Education Emily Wilkinson Arellano. "As children in costumes visit the historic buildings, their treats will be period-correct for each house. For example, at the 1909 Barton House, volunteers will be handing out Hershey's Kisses, which were developed in 1906. At the 1886 Las Escarbadas division of the XIT Ranch, Trick or Treaters will receive Tootsie Rolls, which were developed in 1896."

Cogdells Store will be open with Halloween decorations, gifts and fall merchandise.

Heritage Halloween is free to the public, but donations are welcome at the door.
