Halloween at the Heard


NBC 5 and the Heard invite you to Halloween at the Heard, Collin County’s premier family-friendly Halloween event, which will be held at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary from 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 19th. Guests will have the opportunity to experience an evening full of fun activities including trick-or-treating along the Dinosaurs Live! Live-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs trail.
Other Event Highlights Include:
A costume contest where kids ages 12 and under can share their creativity.

The PG-rated movie How to Train Your Dragon will be shown under the stars in the Heard's outdoor amphitheater.

Those who dare can experience our new “Ghost Town” or take a trail detour after the movie through our "Haunted Forest" and encounter a ghost or creature of the night!

Visitors will get to walk through the Heard’s indoor exhibits, which will be open throughout the event, and outdoor exhibit, Animals of the World, which will be open until dusk.

Guests will have the opportunity to pose for a photo at the Clix Photography booth.

Concessions will be available, including grilled hot dogs provided by Whole Foods Market.
The Heard recommends that guests bring insect repellant, flashlights, blankets and/or stadium seats for use during the movie. Guests may also bring their own picnic dinner and non-alcoholic beverages. Trick-or-treat bags, sponsored by Clif KiD, and small flashlights, sponsored by 4imprint, will be available while supplies last.
Admission to this event is $15 for adults, $10 for children ages 3-12, and free for children ages 2 and under. See heardmuseum.org for more details.
