Mamas, you don’t want to miss BREC’s Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center‘s Swamp Haunted Hikes, designed specifically for younger children. Our kids had a great time last year, it’s an evening chock-full of activities and not-so-scary Halloween fun! Check out our short video from last year below!
Swamp Haunted Hikes – BREC’s Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center
This program is an alternative to the commercial haunted houses, which are geared more for teenagers and adults. Spooky Storytime and make-and-take crafts are offered in the Education Building. Trek through the Swamp Graveyard Maze to get to our Crazy Carnival Games and a face-painting station. Interact with snakes, insects, rats, and other “creepy critters” at treat stations along the Haunted Hike Trail. Pass through our Animal Morgue to visit with more live animals from Wings of Hope Wildlife Sanctuary – and don’t forget to check out nature’s “grossest” in the Creepy Cavern.
Costumed characters lurk throughout the site ready to share “kooky treasures” with all the attending little witches, fairies, hobgoblins, and heroes. No scare tactics are used during this program, and participants are welcome (and encouraged) to come in costume. Bring a flashlight. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Food vendors will be on site selling snacks and beverages. Sponsored by DIG Magazine. Join us at Haunted Hikes for some family-friendly Halloween fun!
We hope to see you there!
