Hallow-Palooza is the City of Taylor's marquee family Halloween event. It is free for residents (bring valid identification) and $5 per non-resident child attending. All minors must be accompanied by an authorized adult or parent throughout the event. Hallow-Palooza was created to much success, with thousands of people attending. The trick-or-treat event follows a path that winds it way through "spooky locations" in Heritage Park, the petting farm, Taylor Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and other stops.
Tons of locations offer trick-or-treat candies, and the conservatory sponsors a wonderful "scary car show" in its gardens' area. Bring your own trick-or-treat bags! Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase, and scarecrow and costume contest will take place on location, with attendees voting. There will be plenty of bounce houses, music and more. A free movie, "Toy Story of Terror," will be shown in the Sheridan Center Open Air Pavilion at 7:30 p.m.
