Storied downtown Dallas hotel to host kids’ fun by day, adults’ fun by night

The Stater Dallas will celebrate Halloween not once, but twice. The festivities start in the daytime for children and families, then switch to an adults-only sensibility when the sun goes down.

Guests of all ages can take part in an expanded expression of the usual door-to-door trick-or-treating from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at The Statler’s Scare Fare.
