Attend a hoot of a Halloween happening at The Connecticut Audubon Society’s Enchanted Forest located on 2325 Burr Street in Fairfield on Friday, October 28 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. This is an alternative, nature-themed Halloween celebration, the Enchanted Forest also introduces fascinating, entertaining and educational information about nocturnal animals in their natural habitat.
Children are encouraged to wear costumes for this unique and fun – but not scary – event. Experience the Larsen Sanctuary at night while being escorted along the luminary trail by volunteers who light the way with flashlights. The festivities also feature fall-themed craft making, Halloween snacks and a chance to meet some of the Center’s creepy, crawly critters. The Enchanted Forest is held rain or ‘moon’ shine.
