Temperatures are going down. Leaves are falling. Pumpkin-spice is everywhere. And the Cowboys are back! That can only mean one thing: it’s fall, y’all!
Here in Frisco, we are counting down the days until our favorite holiday, Halloween. Things may look a little different this year, nevertheless, we are looking forward to putting on a costume and snacking on candy from now until Easter.
If you’re stuck on a costume, we’ve got some fun ideas that are as easy to put together as they are Frisco inspired.
FC DALLAS PLAYER
Soccer is back! FC Dallas recently announced five regular season home matches, highlighted by the 2020 Texas Derby (FC Dallas v. Houston Dynamo) in Frisco on Halloween.

Take the pitch with this look:
- Red FC Dallas jersey
- Navy workout shorts
- Knee-high socks
- Athletic shoes
- Soccer ball
DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADER
This year, we could all use a little more cheer. So, bring the hype to Halloween as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader (DCC). Known as America’s sweethearts, the DCCs are pioneers of their sport. If you need a little more inspiration, you can find them performing routines on the touchdown deck during the Dallas Cowboys games.
Ready. Ok. Blue and white, Cowboys, let’s fight!
