Halloween 2014: The Recap

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014 0 COMMENTS


DSC01723halloween14_68halloween14_68On the weekends of October 10th and 17th, Catty Shack Ranch had our 9th annual Haunted Forest. More than 2000 visitors came out to enjoy arts and crafts, our scary Haunted Forest, and of course the animals! All of our animals enjoyed seeing the costumes; it actually acts as a safe enrichment for them. Our visitors enjoyed the decorations, games, and the haunted trail which included scare actors and more than a few surprises!

Congratulations to Sherri R., who won the “Guess the Pumpkin’s Weight” game, and to Robin T., who won the “Guess the Number of Eyeballs” in the jar!

halloween14_14Special thanks to our Halloween Committee and to the volunteer groups who helped to make this event possible: HHF-FSCJ, UNF SAE (Sigma Alpha Epsilon), the 501st Legion (including Storm Troopers and Darth Vader), Girl Scout Troop 1103, and Letz-Face-It (who provided face painting)! It was a lot of work, but this was our best Halloween yet!
