Halloween Hike back to Oatland Island
Placeholder Image
Once again, families with young children have something to cheer about. The not-too-scary and very friendly Halloween Hike returns to Oatland Island Wildlife Center in Savannah this year from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 29-30.
Visitors walk through a short portion of Oatland’s trail where they will meet some friendly forest critters and their friends. Costumed animal characters will be passing out treats, and Mother Goose will be telling stories in Oatland’s Barnyard.
Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes and comfortable walking shoes. Treat bags will be provided. Food concessions and other children’s activities, such as pony rides, hay rides and face painting will be available.
Admission is $8 per child, $6 per adult. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The remainder of Oatland’s trail will be closed. For more information call 395-1212 or 395-1500 or visit
