In addition to live music, food and drink, Thursday nights in October will include optional family-friendly BOO-tanical Trick-or-Treating trail with eight fun, educational nature-themed stations including “Maggot Painting” or “Termite Races” offered in partnership with OSU Entomology Department. Each child gets a trick-or-treat bag with their trick-or-treating ticket to collect unique treats like bug, bird and wildlife trading cards, insect toys, vegetable seeds for planting, candy and more. There will also be a kids’ costume contest at 7 p.m. each week on the Great Lawn.
Cost for participating in the BOO-tanical trick-or-treating: $10/child in advance, $12 day-of, in addition to a regular admission ticket.
