Have a fun time playing Boo Bowling or “Pin the Spider on the Web.

If you are brave, we have dare you stick your hand into scary “mystery”  boxes which are full of things like icky spiders, brains, maggots, eyeballs or witch’s hair. If your aim is good, try throwing a pumpkin in a bucket, or guess how many candies are in a jar.

We’ll also have scary storytelling by Pat Trask, a craft area to make a take home colourful 3D spider and a Halloween goodie sale.

Admission is by donation of $2 per person (adults and children).  Proceeds from donations and the goodie sale will go towards purchasing a larger fish tank for our ever-growing African lungfish named Pam.
