McCloud Nature Center will be having an "unspookified" Halloween event on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The event is designed to be less spooky and friendlier. People from the nature center will be debunking myths about all Halloween creatures such as owls, spiders, bats and more.
Children can participate in crafts and enjoy festive snacks and treats. Attendants can also wear their costumes and tour the Bat Prairie Maze.
