Halloween at the Heard
10/21/2017 @ 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
On October 21th, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., visitors from across North Texas will experience Collin County’s premier family-friendly Halloween event at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary. Halloween at the Heard features a safe environment to experience the joy of trick-or-treating along the eerie Dinosaurs Live! Live-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs trail.
Families will enjoy an evening full of fun activities including a presentation of a family-friendly movie on the Heard’s outdoor amphitheater stage. Kids ages 12 and under will also have the opportunity to participate in a costume contest.
Those who dare will be able take a trail detour after the movie through our “Haunted Forest” and “Ghost Town” where they may encounter a ghost or creature of the night (not recommended for younger children)! Guests can also take a photo in their costumes.
The Heard recommends that guests bring insect repellent, flashlights, water-resistant blankets and/or stadium seats for use during the movie. Concessions will be available for purchase. Guests may also bring their own picnic dinner and non-alcoholic beverages.
Tickets will be available to the public beginning September 29. The Heard Museum Members-Only Pre-sale will be offered September 19 through September 28.
Proceeds from this event benefit Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary, a private 501(c)3 organization. The Heard was founded in 1967 by Bessie Heard. Miss Heard was 80 years old when she saw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, the Heard’s mission of bringing nature and people together is carried out through education, particularly of young people, which emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation.
