A spooky time of year: BREC hosts Halloween events
BATON ROUGE - Halloween time isn't just about zombies and scary movies, it's also about family-friendly events.
BREC is hosting multiple Halloween events throughout East Baton Rouge Parish.
The second BREC-A-Boo event will be held at Forest Community Park October 26 and 27. Residents are encouraged to come dress in costume.
Families with young children can participate in the Bluebonnet Swamp Haunted Hikes. October 26 is the last day of the event. Hikes run from 6p.m. until 9 p.m. The price is $6 a person.
Bluebonnet Swamp’s Haunted Hikes are designed especially for younger children. There will be a spooky storytime, crafts, a swamp graveyard maze, and more. Visitors will also get the chance to interact with "creppy critters."
Farr Park Equestrian Center will be showing 'Hocus Pocus' for a fun movie night on October 26 from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. Hayrides will also be offered and will begin at 6:30 p.m.
There is also a Halloween event at the zoo. Boo at the Zoo is a "merry-not-scary" event. Guests can wear their customers on October 27 and 28. The zoo will be open from 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Then, the zoo will close at 5 p.m. so children can visit treat stations around the zoo.
On October 26, families can watch 'Halloweentown' at Independence Park Theatre. The movie will run from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m.
