Join the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History for an Owl-O-Ween Festival for all ages from 5:30pm to 8pm on Friday, October 16. Admission to Owl-O-Ween is free; carnival games cost one or more tickets, which can be purchased for a dollar each at the Museum.
The spook-tacular event includes educational booths, 10 carnival games, (including a Treat Walk, Pin the Boo, and Monster Fishing) and live Halloween animals. Visit with local organizations including: Urban Interface, Reptile Hospice & Sanctuary, the Department of Biology, and more. Festival participants will be entertained by “Scarlet”, a red Argentine Tegu lizard, monitors, pythons, and more from the Reptile Sanctuary. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet “Dante”, a barn owl presented by Urban Interface.
Older children can have a hoot of a time with the haunted woods tour. These tours will be led in the Carter Creek Nature Trail by Texas A&M Student Athlete Advisory Committee to help kick off their annual Aggies CAN fundraiser. Bring two canned goods per person to receive free admission into the haunted forest tour. All canned goods benefit The Brazos Valley Food Bank, courtesy of Aggies CAN. A haunted tunnel and other activities for younger audiences will also be available inside.
All ages are invited to come in costume for a chance to win trophies in the following categories: scariest, cutest, most unique, best child, best adult, and best group. There will be an award ceremony at 7pm.
Visitors are encouraged to view museum exhibits, participate in a free scavenger hunt and spider guessing game, visit with local organizations, and learn about Halloween animals and Halloween safety.
