What: Join “Howl-ooo-ween” and trick or treat with the animals at Lindsay Wildlife Experience! Now in its second-year, this family favorite event invites all-ages to come in costume, enjoy story-time, do crafts, meet Lindsay animals and, of course, trick-or-treat with a Lindsay tote bag!

Can your little one weave through the giant Lindsay Spider Web? Or maybe you want to help whip up some “monster slime!” Enjoy this seasonal animal fun, complete with face painting, at Lindsay just a few days before Halloween. But beware our normally inviting exhibit hall will be filled with some haunted fun!

Make sure to mark your howling-good time by stopping by Lindsay’s Howl-OOO-Ween Selfie Station! Then when you get tired of candy, head to the parking lot to sample delicious food from Sliders Food Truck. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

When: Thursday, October 29, 5:30 – 8 p.m.; Food truck will be in the parking lot beginning at 4:30 p.m.
