Every child will receive their very own Lindsay Wildlife Howl-ooo-ween trick-or-treat bag.

From meeting some not-so-scary animals, spooky story time and face painting to making crafts, there are plenty of activities for the whole family. Come hungry, because a food truck will be at Lindsay starting at 5 p.m.
