The Texoma Water Garden Society is once again sponsoring its annual Pond Tour. Members of the garden society open up their unique gardens to the public.

The festival opens up at 11 Saturday morning and runs until 7 pm at 9th and Ohio. Proceeds will go towards downtown development projects. 

Insane Acres:

Halloween is getting closer and that means the ghosts and goblins are starting to pop up all across Texoma. Wicked Andy's is putting on Insane Acres. Just a warning, this is not for the faint of heart. If you dare, head out to Charlie, Texas this Friday, Saturday and every weekend in October from 8 pm until midnight. Unlike year's past, this is a walk-through only haunted attraction. 

Burkburnett Project Graduation Haunted House:

This is the opening weekend for the Burkburnett Project Graduation haunted house called 'The Maze.' Money goes towards graduation for Burkburnett's senior class.
