Guests can transform into their favorite characters at a face-painting booth, take festive pictures in the photo booth and taste treats in the food court sponsored by the Rotary Club, Women’s Forum, Lloyds of Avalon and the Cookie and Coffee Co. Additionally, guests can enjoy the Falconry Experience by taking pictures and holding hawks during the event.The Conservancy’s educational staff will offer owl pellet dissections throughout the Halloween celebration.
