It seems like autumn has barely just arrived and here we are facing another Halloween – which much as it pains us to say, marks the end of October already! But when you live (or vacation to!) somewhere this warm, you don’t find yourself dreading what’s coming after the fall months. Halloween does arrive on schedule on South Padre Island and there are plenty of local Halloween events going on. Here’s the rundown on holiday specific activities:
