Halloween at the Heard 2018

Saturday, October 20

NBC 5 and the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary invite you to experience Halloween at the Heard, Collin County’s premier family-friendly event at the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary on Saturday, October. 20, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

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 the "Haunted Forest" and “Ghost Town” where they may encounter a ghost or creature of the night. Guests can also have a photo taken in their costumes.
