For the 3oth year, families will enjoy a crisp fall evening walking through a forest lit with luminaries and populated with many familiar (and some not so familiar) characters from favorite children’s stories, films, TV shows, and fairytales.

This program is designed to be a humorous and very slightly haunting approach to nature that is perfect for families with young children, scout groups or October birthday parties. Many families return year after year to this fun event.
Young attendees should wear their costumes and bring a small trick or treat bag and expect a few little surprises. You never know who you’ll meet on the trail during the Hoot; this year the ever-popular Paint Creek Pirates will be circus performers! Kids should also keep their eye peeled for Charlie Brown & the gang, Puss & Boots, the Story Witch, the Little Engine that Could and much more!
