Wild Things return to Richmond Nature Park
19 October 2016
Hundreds of jack o’ lanterns will light up Richmond Nature Park to reveal Wild Things like sassy crows, cheeky coyotes, scintillating spiders, dancing mushrooms and other forest creatures that gather annually to celebrate Halloween. Wild Things takes place on Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Children will have to find their way past the troll who guards the entrance. From there, they will meet over a dozen larger than life animals before going on to get acquainted with a gaggle of witty witches. Face painting, story-telling and a dance party round out the night.
Wild Things is suitable for all ages, but an adult must accompany children. Admission is free for children ages two and under, $2 for children three to 12 and $3 for people 13 and up. Proceeds support the Richmond Nature Park Society’s nature education programs.
Flashlights and costumes are optional. Please dress appropriately for the weather as the event is held rain or shine.
There will only be accessible parking at Richmond Nature Park. For those attending Wild Things with their family, there will be free parking at Cambie Secondary School, 4151 Jacombs Road. From there, hop on the Pumpkin Express Shuttle for a short ride to the Nature Park. While on the shuttle bus, enter a draw for a chance to win a one week Park ’N Fly pass at YVR and other prizes.
Wild Things is made possible by assistance from the City of Richmond, Richmond News, The Co-operators, Auto West BMW, TransLink, Transit Museum Society, Richmond Public Library and Richmond Nature Park Society.
