Halloween weekend is upon us! Although it looks a bit different this year, there are still plenty of fun and festive activities to entertain:
Dress Up the Little Ones and book a ride on The Pumpkin Train 2020 Presented by Heber Valley Railroad. You and your kids will enjoy our annual Pumpkin Train! Your ticket includes a short 40 minute train ride where you will be entertained on board by costumed characters. You’ll also be served a delicious pumpkin cookie. At the depot you can take a trip through our (family friendly) haunted car, and get a Halloween sticker. And, of course, you also get to select a pumpkin from our Pumpkin Patch and take it home with you! Additional food and snacks will be available for purchase at the depot. www.hebervalleyrr.org/specialevents/pumpkinfestival/
Or drive down the canyon to the Hogle Zoo Thursday or Friday for BooLights. Let your littles wear their costumes, yummy treats in the Beastro, and the sounds of the Zoo after dark. BooLights is a great place to safely enjoy the Halloween season. Buy your tickets at www.hoglezoo.org/events_experiences/annual_events/boolights/
