The Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Howl-O-Ween Harvest Family Festival takes place on Saturdays in October

Animal-loving kids can embark on a journey of discovering “spooky” and cuddly creatures throughout October at the Howl-O-Ween Harvest Family Festival at the Helen Woodward Animal Center. The Halloween-themed family event features interactive animal encounters, seasonal crafts, a mini pumpkin hay maze, and a brand new Indiana ‘Bones’ excursion. The Howl-O-Ween Harvest Family Festival kicked off on October 2 with private adventures running from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday in October and Halloween weekend.

Immersing families in the spooky Halloween spirit, this unique event features the cuddly and not-so-cuddly creatures of the Helen Woodward Animal Center, giving children the opportunity to meet them up close and personally. Festival-goers get a one-hour experience with their ghoulish group as they are guided by spooky staff through animal encounters, a monster headband, and an expedition through Indiana’s all-new ‘Bones’ maze. .

To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, the number of visitors at the same time will be limited. Festival-goers will stay in their group and be guided through the experience by a member of the Helen Woodward Creepy Crew for the duration of the hour-long tour. Tickets cost $ 40 and include four people. Each additional person is $ 10. The best part is that all funds go directly to supporting orphaned pets and the Helen Woodward Animal Center programs.

Registration is required and can be completed at The festival dates are Saturdays, October 9, 16, 23 and Halloween weekend, October 30 and 31, with time slots available between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Families are invited to come a little early or stay a little late to meet other animals and enjoy additional activities in the event space.
