Members' only preview: 10 - 11 a.m.
Open to public: 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Children and grown-ups alike are encouraged to wear costumes. Wear comfortable walking shoes to enjoy a forest trail with scattered trick-or-treat locations. Stops along the trail will include activities for kids to learn about nocturnal animals that live in Houston, including armadillos, spiders and owls.

Other activities include:

  • Live animals
  • Hay Rides
  • Petting Zoo
  • Pony Rides
  • Cake Walk Owl Dracula
  • Train rides
  • Carnival Games
