Our house decorations this year will feature the enchanted castle. Step inside and explore the rooms where you will find a real magical fairy garden, and whoops! someone dropped some magic beans and now we have a beanstalk growing straight through the ceiling.
We have brought back one of our vistor favorites! The hay maze will be located behind the conservatory where mom and dad can sit and relax with a snack or cup of coffee while watchiing the children run and play through the maze.

Meet some of the animals that haunt our dreams, make our “skin crawl,” and the hair stand up on the back of our necks! We’ll discuss animals that are perfectly at home in the shadows & in swamps, and are on the prowl under the moonlit sky.
Join Animal Embassy as we demystify these amazing creatures and help families to cross the line from fear to respect and appreciation. Animal Embassy will help families to see the beauty in these often maligned and misunderstood creatures. We will showcase Animal Ambassadors such as a Pink-toed Tarantula, an Emperor Scorpion, a Sinaloan Milk Snake, a Boa Constrictor, an Axolotl, an Argentine Black & White Tegu and more “spooktacular” animals in the spirit of Halloween!
Our resident dinosaur will be making appearances throughout the event, but there will be other surprises along the way. You never know who might step out of a storybook that you will meet along the way.
