A 35-year Tradition of Celebrating Halloween the Natural Way

Halloween Haunts combines the make-believe, spooky fun of Halloween with the beauty of nighttime nature to create a fun event for the whole family. For three nights each year, Wehr's woodland is transformed into an Enchanted Forest complete with a cackling witch, a talking owl, and even some rapping arthropods. Visitors are amazed by the over three hundred Jack-o-lanterns that light the path through the forest. The walk is just spooky enough to keep kids on their toes, but is designed to create chuckles and smiles, not nightmares.

No child should experience the fear of going hungry. Wehr is proud to bring back our annual Halloween Haunts Food Drive in support of Hunger Task Force’s “Food for Families” campaign.

Contributing is easy. Bring a non-perishable food item to Wehr (see Hunger Task Force’s list of preferred healthy items) and drop it in the barrel in our entry area OR contribute to our Virtual Food Drive. The virtual food drive will be open from October 1 to October 31 and you can add to our in-person barrels during the week of the Haunts, October 15-21, 2023.

Hunger Task Force is a great partner to Wehr’s Halloween Haunts, providing the pumpkins that create our Jack-o-lantern lit trail. Please help us support their work to combat hunger in our community.


Halloween Haunts is a Family Tradition

"This was THE best kids Halloween program I have attended. My nephew had such a great time and I thought it was super cute as well. We will be back next year!"

"Always brought the kids when they were little, and we loved it. The kids are now young adults and still want to attend."

"It’s a cute kid-friendly event. Gets us in the Halloween Spirit!"
