The Tallahassee Museum will hold its 22nd annual Halloween Howl October 23 and 24 from 6-10 p.m.

Halloween Howl is a two-night event filled with hours of fun activities for children, as well as adults. There will be trick-or-treating, a land of mystical creatures, both haunted and not-so-spooky trails, carnival games, prizes and much more.

Natasha Hartsfield, director of education at the Tallahassee Museum, explains what Halloween Howl is all about.

“Halloween Howl is the largest on-site fundraiser held for the Museum, raising over $40,000 last year.  It provides a safe environment for young children and their families to come learn some spooky science in our Discovery Center, play games, win candy and prizes, and enjoy lots of entertainment from music to spooky adventures through the haunted trail, which is likely to be the best yet!” exclaimed Hartsfield.

Hartsfield, also stated the event brought more than 4,000 people between the two nights last year and this year they are expecting many more.

There will be live music and spooky sounds from a few local bands, such as Safari Man and The Jamie Eubanks Band.

The museum’s Trail Break Café will offer tasty treats for a delectable dinner or as a snack during the event.

An annual costume contest will also be a part of the Halloween Howl and is open to guests of all ages.

Tallahassee resident, Martian Marley took to Facebook to express his excitement of Halloween Howl, saying he is ready to go.

“Soo ready for the haunted trail! Literally go EVERY YEAR, this year makes year 5!” said Marley.

All funds raised will help support the Museum’s educational, conservation and preservation activities.
