For one day only, the Gardens on Spring Creek will be transformed into a Halloween-themed enchanted garden complete with magical fairies and furry friends. While this seasonal celebration will be sans candy, there will still be plenty of sweet, spooky and fun activities for kids to take part in.

From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on October 31, the Gardens will be filled with a variety of attractions, planned especially for entertaining young children. Kids are encouraged to wear their costumes to this event. The day will include face painting, games, a magic show, Halloween story time, pumpkin and pirate bowling, and even a mad scientist experiment zone courtesy of CSU’s Little Shop of Physics. Plus, the kiddos can participate in making festive seasonal crafts to take home with them and visit with the legendary Talking Pumpkin. The CSU Entomology Club will also be on site with tons of creepy, crawly bugs on hand.

Both children and adults can warm up by enjoying delicious food and hot drinks provided by local favorites including The Coffee Stop, Heaven's Popcorn, and Seasonal Soups.

Admission is $5 per child and tickets can be purchased online or at the Gardens on the day of the event. The Gardens on Spring Creek are located at 2145 Centre Avenue in Fort Collins.
