Friday, Oct. 24 at 5 p.m. — CASTLETON — Looking for a “wild” family-based adventure for Halloween this year? The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is inviting families to attend the annual Halloween Wildlife Festival and Jack-o’Lantern Hike at the Education Center of the Edward F. Kehoe Green Mountain Conservation Camp on Point of Pine Road in Castleton on Friday, Oct. 24, from 5 – 8 p.m.
The festival features a fun and educational Halloween campfire show led by students from Green Mountain College’s environmental education and interpretation program. Kids will learn about the creepy, crawly critters that reside in Vermont and will have a chance to get decked out in their costumes before the traditional trick-or-treat night. The 20-minute campfire program will run at 5, 6, and 7 p.m.
Other activities include a nature hike along a trail with carved and lit pumpkins, wildlife-related activities, face painting, and a photo booth. Snacks will include apple cider, caramel apples and other seasonal treats.
Admission and activities are free and open to the general public, and all ages are welcome. No registration is required. Costumes are encouraged, but not required.
