 2013 Halloween Walk with the Animals!

 
 
Ghosts and goblins of all ages can join the fun at the Salato Wildlife Education Center’s Halloween Walk with the Animals in Frankfort from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26. Admission to this kid-safe, trick-or-treat event is $5 a person. Members get in free.
 
The event is most appropriate for kids under the age of 11 and their parents. Little trick-or-treaters are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes. NOTE: Doors open at noon instead of the usual 10 a.m. during this event.
 
The Salato Center staff will treat visitors with lots of exciting activities. The fun begins at the door when kids get their animal passports. Kids can then collect candy and get their passports stamped at animal exhibits throughout the grounds.
 
Little goblins can explore the Haunted Hay Maze and dare to view the Creatures of the Night exhibit. Kids also can fish for a prize at the fishing booth.
 
Visitors can skip the lines by buying their tickets in advance. Call (502) 564-7863 for more information. The Halloween Walk with the Animals helps raise funds for future exhibits and programs.
