Forest of Fright and Delight  |  October 23  |  6 to 9 p.m.
We’re baaack! Explore our woods to experience what goes bump in the night at Red Oak. Sit by the campfire and listen to tales told by one of our infamous residents or choose to hike one of our self-guided spirit trails where you never know who or what you’ll bump into. Ghouls are encouraged to shake the goosebumps off inside the nature center where they can warm up with a craft, music, and candy. Activities are self-guided and outside; due to thematic elements young children are not recommended. Flashlights are strongly encouraged. Pre-registration ends Friday the 22nd.
