7 Family-Friendly Fall Activities in Canton, TX

Posted: October 22, 2019 by Silver Spur Master

Happy Fall Y’all!

The weather is cooling, pumpkin spice is everywhere, and the holidays are right around the corner. This is the time of year where memories are made. When everything is magical in the eyes of a child and even the smallest of moments can leave a lasting impression. It is our favorite time of the year to spend with our families, from enjoying local activities in the Canton community to participating in fun new traditions that create happy memories.

So to celebrate our favorite time of year, we’ve put together a list of family-friendly fall activities for you to enjoy, right here at Silver Spur Resort!

Festival of Frights

Is there anything better than Halloween? From the excitement of kids choosing that perfect costume to the fun of family traditions, Halloween is one of our favorite holidays!

We know the night can get a little crazy when the kids are bursting with excitement, and all they can think about is candy, candy, and more candy! Parents want to enjoy the night with their family but without a lot of hassle and running around. That’s why our team has put together a spooktacular evening of fun for the entire family at Silver Spur Resort.

This free event (oh yes, we said FREE!) has activities that range from traditional lawn games like potato sack races, cornhole, lawn darts, and giant bowling to kid-approved activities like rock painting, face painting, washable tattoos, and a cupcake walk! Have a spooky time in our haunted maze, create photo booth memories, and enjoy hayrides around our KOA campground, where trick-or-treating will take place. 

Enjoy the convenience of our on-site restaurant, the Q & Brew, where we serve delicious BBQ menu items and a popular kids menu. And when mom & dad need a break from the festivities, we have a great line-up of craft beer on tap and assortment of Red 55 wines.

Our escape rooms are designed to fully immerse players into the game while creating tons of fun memories for your group. 

Pay to be “locked” in a room for an hour? We say, “yes please!” Especially when adults pay the kids price for an entire week! To celebrate Halloween AND the one-year anniversary of The Escape Room’s opening, EVERYONE plays for the kid’s price of just $15 from October 24th through October 31st!

Chuckwagon Experience

Bonus event…You heard it here first! Our team will start organizing Chuckwagon dinners after the New Year! What is a Chuckwagon dinner you say? Imagine this: The chow bell rings you and your fellow pioneers are invited to sit inside our climate-controlled barn for a western-style chuckwagon dinner reminiscent of one served around a campfire over a century ago. Grab a tin plate and head through the chuckwagon where you’ll be served tender BBQ chicken and baby back ribs, baked potato, cowboy beans, luscious flying biscuits, and coleslaw…with a side of entertainment. Why have a regular dinner, when you can have a Chuckwagon dinner?!

Want a private Chuckwagon experience for you and your group? We can make that happen! Email for help organizing corporate retreats, birthday parties, reunions, and more!
