Halloween Festivities (For All Ages)
• Trick-or-Treat: Though entirely optional, we invite you to come in costume! You’ll be greeted at the admissions table with a complimentary bag and map featuring all vendors participating in trick-or-treat. These vendors will have an assortment of complimentary goodies to share, and ask only in return that you take a moment to admire their craft. Consider supporting them further if you like what you see!
• Wandmaking and other crafts, suitable for all ages! All workshops are included with admission so no fee will be collected, but we are also accepting optional donations for one of our sponsored endangered species at World Wildlife Fund.
• Costume Photobooth: Strike a pose at our complimentary photo booth!
Meet Your Familiar:
A Familiar is believed to be a supernatural entity that assists witches in their magickal practices. This spirit typically takes the form of an animal.
At our Adopt-A-Familiar booth, you’ll be able to either choose or take an optional test to determine which animal spirit best resonates with your personality & unique magickal gifts. As your Familiar knows the ultimate struggle of witchkind – persecution – they will take the form of an endangered species, so you will have the rare opportunity to adopt your enchanted companion from one of the World Wildlife Fund‘s adoption kits.
Other donations will be accepted on a smaller scale! Various items depicting your Familiar will be available for purchase, with all proceeds going directly to your chosen species conservation program at WWF.
