Then, take the family on the Kid-Friendly Trail (7-9 p.m.) to learn about typically frightening animals, such as spiders, bats, snakes and bugs. If everyone is still feeling brave, explore the Haunted Forest, where things may go bump in the night! The EstuScary Festival, including games and Halloween candy is free; the Haunted Forest is $6.
