October 25 - 26, Wildlife Park Brewing Up Fun for Annual Haunted Tram Rides Event

Guest article by Susan Strawbridge.homosassa-wildlife-park-logo

The Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park, park staff and community groups are brewing up two evenings of fun for their annual Haunted Tram Rides event at Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park on Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26. Pepper Creek Trail will be transformed into a trail of haunting scenarios that will delight families. Tram rides will begin at 6:00 p.m. and run until 11:00 pm. The suggested donation for the tram ride is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children up to age 12.

There will also be children’s Haunted House, Halloween Costume Contest, clowns, face painting, souvenirs, refreshments and games, such as the Sorcerer’s Bouncy House, a 25-foot climbing wall, and a 15-foot dry slide.

Schrade’s Tae Kwon Do studio will be creating a special Haunted House in the Florida Room of the Visitor Center. The donation for admission to the Haunted House is $2.00.

Games will also be available with a donation of $5.00 per person for the climbing wall and $2.00 per child for the Bouncy House or 15-foot slide. Face painter Anne Adams will add to the fun. Refreshments including food, cold drinks, popcorn and other delicious goodies, and trinkets will be available.

Costume contests will start at 7:00 pm with two age groups, ages seven and under and eight and over. Awards will be given for the Most Imaginative, the Scariest and the Cutest costumes in each group. The contest for the younger group will start at 7:00 pm, to be followed by the older group.

Participating businesses and groups will be decorating locations along the Pepper Creek Trail with their own spooky setups. Guidelines and applications are available at the park office. Locations will be judged for prizes of $500 for first place, $300 for second place and $100 for third place. For more information on the Haunted Tram Rides event, call Tricia Fowler or Susan Strawbridge weekdays at (352) 628-5343.
