The 956 Bully Squad Halloween Bully Bash
All dog owners know that bulldogs happen to be some of the friendliest pups out there. Unfortunately, bad owners can give the breed a bad name but these loveable animals offer so much heart and love.

If you are bringing a loveable French or English bullpup you can have them join in on the festivities and interact with other friendly canines.

Hit the Beach
The fall season is a great time to see South Padre Island when it is not swarming with the typical spring or summer crowds. The weather in South Padre Island is very mild allowing guests to still enjoy beachside activities during a stay around Halloween. The bay is most ideal during the fall when the waves are still perfect for surfing or swimming and the water temperature hasn’t drastically changed. Hit up one of the local rental shops to find surfing gear or lessons. You can also rent JetSkis to zip around the water for a thrilling time. If you prefer to relax on the water SUP or stand-up paddle boards, are the way to go. South Padre Island is home to several professional sandcastle builders so too can create a masterpiece on the shore. There is so much to enjoy from the beaches of South Padre Island!
Visit Sea Turtle, Inc.
In between your festive outings for Halloween in South Padre make sure to see the incredible work done at Sea Turtle, Inc. This local not-for-profit organization saves the lives of thousands of sea turtles every year. Sea turtles who are found injured are rehabilitated by Sea Turtle, Inc. and released back out into the wild. Their facility houses a few permanent residents who are too injured to head back out into the wild. You can meet these incredible animals up close. Also, make sure to stop by the South Padre Island Birding Nature Center and Alligator Sanctuary; the alligator sanctuary has a 12-foot gator that can be seen leaping out of the water during its feeding sessions! Plenty of all-ages fun here in the area.
