Halloween Glen



Thanks to everyone who joined us at Halloween Glen in 2021! You can see a gallery of photos on Facebook here.

Actors will present interactive and educational skits at eight decorated stations at Hawthorn Glen, Milwaukee Recreation’s 23-acre nature center. This humorous and educational outdoor adventure is a great alternative to the usual Halloween events!

This year’s theme is living the sky life! Things are looking up, so we are looking up at things. Lift your chins, raise your sights, and prepare for lofty ideas as you meet some of natures’ top-level creatures who know how to hit the high notes. Following the hike, families are welcome to participate in a variety of fall-themed activities.

Concessions will be available (cash only).
