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 1 – 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25. Admission to this kid-safe, trick-or-treat event is $5 per person.
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.
The Salato Center staff will trick or treat you with lots of exciting activities. The fun begins at the door when kids get their Halloween activity book and animal passports. There will be plenty of candy for kids as they get their passports stamped at each animal exhibit. Take your little goblins through the Haunted Hay Maze, explore Creatures of the Night, or have their faces painted.
For an extra dollar, kids can fish for a prize at the fishing booth. Children will love meeting animal characters and learning about their winter homes on the new “Walk the Wild Woods!”
Kids and their parents can also tour the Salato grounds and see the bears, bobcats, deer, elk, bison and eagles.
Wal-Mart of Frankfort, along with several other area businesses, are joining the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources as sponsors of the Halloween Walk with the Animals.
