Face painting is one of the many free activities at Hale-O-Ween on October 26.
Hale-O-Ween is back by popular demand. This Hale family favorite returns on Saturday, October 26, from 2 to 5 p.m. The event is free and will include hikes, arts and crafts, games, a bouncy house, and more.
“Our property is open 365 days a year and while we encourage people to come out and explore on their own, we also enjoy providing free public events like Hale-O-Ween,” said Paula McLaughlin, director of community engagement. “Although the theme is Halloween, there will be a Hale slant to many of the activities. For example, children can make a bat or owl from pine cones, try their skills at archery, and participate in fun team-building games.”
Hale-O-Ween is the first of three family events which are made possible by generous sponsors. Hale will host their annual self-guided scavenger hunt on November 29 and a winter open house on January 11. Although free to the public, participants are encouraged to sign up by visiting www.halereservation.org.
