Halloween Fun in Zion

October 07, 2019

Everybody knows that even though Halloween falls on October 31, the holiday is celebrated much longer than a single day. For families who love celebrating an extended Halloween week, there’s no better place to party with other ghouls and witches than Zion Park District’s Trail of Treats & Halloween Fest.

Trail of Treats is a large festival dedicated to everything Halloween and will host a plethora of family-friendly fun. There will, of course, be plenty of trick-or-treating with only the biggest candy bars around. Kids will be able to add some flair to their costumes with on-site face painting. They will also get to compete in fun, fair games for extra candy and prizes and all of that pent-up energy can be put to good use with a bounce house and hayride to follow. Dress them up in their Halloween best because the best dressed can win the annual costume contest. This free event will take place on October 25 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
