New Canaan Nature Center’s Halloween Spooktacular

October 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$10 – $15

Friday, October 25th
6:30pm – 8:30pm

Get into the Halloween spirit by joining us for this spooktacular celebration, NCNC-style. We’ll learn about and meet some creepy critters who remind us of All Hallows Eve (spiders, bats, snakes, & more), before getting the chance to make our very own slime. We’ll wrap up the evening by enjoying a spooky & interactive Halloween story and a one-of-a-kind jack-o-lantern experience.

Annual Jack-o-Lantern Carving Contest:
Carve a pumpkin or two or three at home with your family and bring it in to the NCNC Visitor Center on Wednesday, October 23 or Thursday, October 24, any time from 9am-3pm. Each pumpkin must be accompanied by a registration form (see below). Leave it to our naturalists to set the scene and then, on the 25, join us as we take a daring walk through the woods to visit your creepy creations.

Costumes encouraged & welcome!
