From Science Spectrum:

One of Lubbock's largest annual Halloween events, the Spooky Science Carnival at the Science Spectrum, is back again for another exciting year of "spooky, not scary", safe family fun! The Science Spectrum has long built a tradition of providing great family oriented informal science education and looks forward each year to the fun that Halloween can bring in continuing to explore science with the public. Locally, there is also a great need for safe alternatives to traditional trick-or-treating and "scarier" haunted houses geared for older ages.  The Spooky Science Carnival has become the perfect fit for both needs!

The fun all takes place on Halloween Night, Wednesday, October 31st from 5 to 9 pm. This event is great for families and kids up to age 14 looking for a safe Halloween alternative and a fun, educational party all rolled into one. This year's Spooky Science Carnival will include;
