Halloween Adventures

Kick off Halloween celebrations and show off your costume during Meridian Township’s Halloween Adventures on Saturday, October 27th.

Harris Nature Center Halloween Adventures
Time: 10 am – 5 pm

Location: Harris Nature Center 3998 Van Atta Rd, Okemos

If you like spooky fun or just plain fun, you’ll have a blast at the Harris Nature Center's Halloween Adventures. Children will squeal with delight as they enter the Halloween Fun House, a Halloween thrill without blood or gore. Inside the nature building there will be crafts, pumpkin decorating and treats. Outside, find a large games area, follow the path through the Friendly Forest playing games along the way, meet a very large spider, bumblebee and opossum, enjoy a hayride through the autumn woods, select your pumpkin from the pumpkin patch and roast marshmallows over a campfire and capture memories at the photo booth.

The Halloween Adventures event will continue regardless of weather.

There is a $8/child fee due at the time of the event. No registration is needed.
