With the changing of the season come kids going back to school and getting back to more of a routine. The community of Alvin loves to ring in cooler weather by relaxing and celebrating all that autumn has to offer.
For visitors and locals alike, enjoying the historical sites, going antique shopping, and getting out in nature for family-friendly adventures are just part of what makes this town special. Here are some things to do this fall to entertain young and old.
Disc Golf After Dark
Alvin boasts the country’s only dedicated night lit disc golf course at Briscoe Park. It is 18 holes of fun in a 42-acre course. You can certainly do this course during the day, but after the sun goes down, the place lights up and you are immersed in nature, with walking trail access. The course lights are on until 10:30pm, so bring your frisbee and have some fun.
ACC Fall Festival 2021
Join Alvin Community College on October 30th for the Fall Festival. This is where the residents of Alvin really let their “freak flag fly” in celebration of Halloween. Located behind the Health Science Building on the ACC campus, it is an evening of ghoulish fun for the whole family. From 5-9pm, there will be tasty food, great games, and a costume contest (both adults and kids can participate). Join in the fun, if you dare!
1820 Coffeehouse Brain Grinder Trivia
Yes, even Alvin has a trivia night. Held the second Friday of every month, join in the fun on November 12th at the 1820 Coffeehouse. Come on out and show everyone how much you know.
