Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium is Crawling with Halloween “Infestivities”

Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium invites guests to celebrate Halloween “infestivities" at Crawloween on October 29, October 30, and October 31. Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes, learn about some "scary" critters, discover pumpkins that double as animal habitats, and enjoy Halloween-themed cookies.

Staff entomologists will be on hand to talk about myths and legends behind some of the most misunderstood arthropods including roaches, spiders and scorpions. Visitors can also enter the "Guess How Many Maggots Are in the Jar” contest. The three closest guesses will receive gift certificates to Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium’s “Flea Market” gift shop.

The Halloween bug fun awaits from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to trick-or-treat for bug-themed treats at presentation stations in the event. Guests dressed in Halloween costumes will receive an admission discount ($3 off for adults, $2 off for children under 12 years). All Crawloween activities are included with general admission.
