Grab the costumes and round up the kids for the biggest family event of the year! On Saturday, October 19th, Houston Arboretum, and Nature Center will host ArBOOretum Fall Festival, featuring fun activities for all ages!

At ArBOOretum, families can enjoy live animals, pumpkin decorating and Houston’s only Trick-or-Treat Nature Trail. The Trick-or-Treat Nature Trail will lead kids on an adventure of discovery where they will learn about creatures that live at the Arboretum, collecting candy along the way. Other favorites include train rides, live reptiles, pumpkin decorating, a petting zoo, pony rides, and face painting.

There will also be a Halloween Market featuring activities and wares from local vendors and a Pumpkin Patch with pumpkins for sale for $5 and unlimited photo opportunities. Additionally, the festival will hold a Spooky Science Show filled with Halloween-themed experiments, as well as a blood drive for donors aged 16 and up. Enjoy free admission when you sign up to give blood!

Located on the western edge of Memorial Park, the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and the opportunity to experience the natural world. This non-profit urban nature sanctuary provides education about the natural environment for people of all ages.
