Fall events and Halloween activities are still on the schedule over the next month around The Woodlands, though some have been modified due to the coronavirus.

According to The Woodlands Township website, among the events still scheduled for this year is the annual Trick or Treat Trail, though modifications have been made to encourage distancing, and the event is scheduled as a drive-thru.

Taking place Oct. 24 from 2-6 p.m., the township asks attending residents to remain in their vehicles and wear a mask to protect themselves and the volunteers taking part.

"Pre-packaged candy and other items will be distributed to vehicle windows by use of 6-foot poles to maintain social distance standards," the post stated.

The event is free to attend, and more information can be found on the township's website.

Through October, those wishing to hear free live music are invited to attend the Concert in The Park fall series, which features a variety of performers at Northshore Park on Sundays.

Among the performers for the series are Level One Band on Sept. 27, Flashpoint on Oct. 11, Route 66 Band on Oct. 18 and Morgan McKay on Oct. 25. Attendees are asked to follow social distancing guidelines while attending.

Across I-45, the city of Oak Ridge North is planning to host its seventh annual Fall Festival on Oct. 24. The free community event at Marilyn Edgar Park, located at 26531 Hillside Drive, will feature an assortment of vendors and food trucks as well as craft stations and activities for children. The festival will take place from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
