ROSWELL, Ga. — Back for one weekend only, Halloween Hikes at the Chattahoochee Nature Center provide non-scary, family-friendly entertainment on Oct. 25 and 26 at 7 p.m.

The hikes take children on a well-lit path through the forest to meet woodland creatures and hear about how they live. Meet costumed characters along the way, including everyone’s favorites: the Box Turtle and Dragonfly. Each character tells its audience about itself and its place in the Chattahoochee River watershed. This year, a new, special character joins the cast.

Participants can also enjoy crafting, face painting, hot chocolate and a campfire with s’mores. Costumes are encouraged. 

Proceeds from s’mores sales will go toward the Camp Kingfisher scholarship fund, allowing needy children to experience a summer camp in nature.

General admission tickets are available day-of.
