Friday, October 9, and Saturday, October 10, 2015:

Our 22nd Annual Event!!!

Join us for the 22nd Annual Halloween Glen! This humorous and educational outdoor adventure is a great alternative to usual Halloween events. Actors will present interactive skits along the luminaria-lighted trails of Hawthorn Glen, Milwaukee Recreation’s 23- acre nature center. Families can then make craft projects, watch Halloween cartoons and enjoy refreshments. Register online or download the brochure & registration form.

This year’s theme is Splash Bash: a celebration of Wisconsin’s watery places and the creatures who call them home. From the deep dark depths to the soggy surface, there will be a lot to ponder. Meet animals with fishy tales to tell and others that are ready to come out of their shells and give you the current news - not to mention a few that marsh to a different beat.

Ages: This event is geared for (ages 3-12) and parent(s)/guardian(s). Children ages 2 and under may attend for free. Parent/guardian must register, pay and attend with child and the number of children 2 and under must be indicated. Fee is per person.

Tyke Hike (Saturday)
This shorter hike is perfect for little ones eager to join in on the adventure! Our energetic tour guides will lead tykes and their families on a hike visiting 4 of the 8 stations. Following the hike families are also welcome to watch Halloween cartoons, make craft projects and enjoy refreshments (concessions are cash only). We are offering this hike at a special price of $3.00 per person. Register using course number #53774 for 4:30PM or #53776 for 5:00PM.
