Palm Desert residents don't have to look far for a fun Halloween themed event this weekend, as the Living Desert will be hosting a three day family friendly celebration.
The "Howl-O-Ween" event begins Friday, Oct. 25, and runs through Saturday, Oct. 28, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.
"Cases of candy, granola bars, pre-packed apples, crackers and healthy snack options have been delivered and hundreds of man-hours have been logged to ensure the Coachella Valley’s biggest Halloween event goes off without a hitch," event organizers said in an announcement.
The theme of the weekend is the Wild West, and when Palm Desert Patch stopped by on Thursday, the old west town was being built up to become a ghost town trick-or-treating station.
It's estimated that 8,000 people will come through the zoo througout the course of the three day event, organizers told Patch.
Some of the other highlights those guests can enjoy include:
- Kids’ jumpers and slides
- Haunted maze
- Rodeo-style trick roper interactive show
- "Fright Ride" through the wilds of Africa and other places
“There will be tricks and treats around every corner and new event attractions.” said Nyla Patzner, spokesperson for The Living Desert. “Plus, parents know The Living Desert is a safe place to bring the kids for Halloween filled with candy, healthy snacks and animal encounters.”
