Zomball in Tomball to offer ‘spooky’ family-friendly fun Oct. 13
The city of Tomball is gearing up for its annual Zomball in Tomball event, which has provided the community with family-friendly Halloween fun for many years.
“Every year it gets bigger and bigger as far as attendance and activities,” said Larissa Roberts, marketing assistant for the city of Tomball.
This year’s Zomball in Tomball will be held Saturday, Oct. 13 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the downtown depot, located at 201 S. Elm Street in Tomball.
The event opens with a Trunk or Treat, where children can go trick-or-treating from car trunk to car trunk. A variety of other activities will be available, including bounce houses, face painting, a haunted maze, spooky gazebo and more.
At 7:30 p.m., the Disney movie “Coco” will be shown.
“This event gives kids a safe place to trick-or-treat,” Roberts said. “It’s a safe, controlled environment. There is a police presence, it’s a city function; plus, it’s an opportunity for kids to do more than trick-or-treat. There are a lot of things incorporated into one event.”
One of the event’s side benefits is that it provides a fun way for local high school students to collect their community service hours.
“We recruit from Tomball High School and Tomball Memorial High School,” Roberts said. “It’s an opportunity for them to dress up in costumes and hand out candy. It’s a fun way to fulfill community service requirements.”
