Wild Things at Richmond Nature Park
Walk a trail lit by hundreds of jack-o-lanterns at Richmond Nature Park’s Wild Things on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Meet spook-tacular creatures like the hooting owls, crafty crows, rascally raccoon, sneaky spider and more at this family friendly event.
Visitors can enter the witch’s lair, cross paths with a troll or bust a move in this year’s Bog BOO-gie Family Dance Tent. Other activities include face painting, storytelling and buying gourds to take home from the Pumpkin Market. If you’re feeling ghoulishly hungry, visit one of the featured food vendors to snack on freshly-made kettle corn, hot drinks and hot dogs.
Admission to Wild Things is free for children ages two and under, $4 for children ages three to 12 and $6 for adults. Proceeds support the Richmond Nature Park Society’s nature education programs.
Wild Things is suitable for all ages, but all children must be accompanied by an adult. Flashlights and costumes are optional. Please dress appropriately for the weather as the event is held rain or shine. The Richmond Nature Park is located at 11851 Westminster Highway, at No. 5 Road.
On-site parking is not available for this popular event. Instead, arrive at Richmond Nature Park aboard the free, round-trip ride on the Pumpkin Express from Cambie Secondary School (4151 Jacombs Road) or Richmond City Hall (6911 No. 3 Road).
This event is made possible by assistance from the City of Richmond and the Richmond Nature Park Society. For more information about Wild Things, visit www.richmond.ca/halloween.
