The Butterfly Pavilion will host Bug-A-Boo, an indoor trick-or-treating event, from now through Oct. 31.
The event allows costumed families to enjoy a trick-or-treating experience that is “educational and fun while adhering to state and local safety guidance,” according to a release from the Pavilion.
Hours for trick or treating will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (with the last entry at 4 p.m.) daily from Oct. 18 through Oct. 29. On Oct. 30 and 31, Butterfly Pavilion will extend its hours and be open until 8:20 p.m. (with the last entry at 7 p.m.).
“As a nonprofit organization, Butterfly Pavilion prides itself on being a resource for the community,” Russ Pecoraro, Butterfly Pavilion’s Vice President of Marketing. “A lot of families are looking for some sense of normalcy and something fun and safe to do. We think Bug-A-Boo is the perfect event for family fun this Halloween.”
Butterfly Pavilion has created a safe, physically-distanced trick-or-treating experience where children can trick or treat traditionally, according to the release, as well as providing goodie bag stations. Only 20 guests are allowed into the building every 20 minutes, reducing crowds and providing space to move around.
Because of the limitations on guest capacity, reservations are required and can be made at butterflies.org/event/bug-a-boo/. Guests are required to wear appropriate face coverings or masks with costumes to visit Butterfly Pavilion. Halloween and costume masks are not considered adequate protection.
Bug-A-Boo is included with General Admission and free for current Butterfly Pavilion members.
