October Owls and Orchids at the Butterfly House (and the Booterflies Halloween Party)
Have a little one with a fear of Halloween? Now through October 31st, try celebrating the season with October Owls and Orchids at The Butterfly House. More than a thousand owl butterflies will peer through the petals of hundreds of blooming orchids, creating an eerie sight that’s perfect for the month of October – and kids who don’t like monsters.
If you’re looking for a bigger Halloween bash at The Butterfly House, then the Booterflies Halloween Party is the event for you. From 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. on October 25, 26, and 27, kids ages 2-12 (with their families) can wear their Halloween costumes, go on a glow walk and trick-or-treat through the garden, play insect-inspired games, and enjoy lots of “spook”-tacular activities. The cost for this event is $15 for children and $20 for adults.
