Halloween fun at state animal park


GRAY — The Maine Wildlife Park’s eighth annual “Halloween-Fest” will run from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 21 and 22. Adults and kids alike are invited to wear their costumes and get into the spirit of Halloween.

New this year will be a Haunted Woodchuck Tunnel for the smaller kids to wriggle through. Parents will be able to watch their kids go through at all times. Again this year, there will be two Haunted Hay Rides running simultaneously every five minutes.

There will be Pumpkin Patch Tales, Halloween-themed games and activities like the Marshmallow Shoot-Out or the Leaf Pile Plunge, costume contests for all ages and face painted. Cider and doughnuts will be available at the Snack Shack.

Park officials suggest bringing flashlights. The regular admission fee will be charged.  Call the park automated voice mail at 657-4977 for up-to-date information on the days of the festival or visit www.mainewildlifepark.com or  www.mefishwildlife.com or on Facebook!
