What Is Happening At Our Halloween Event?

Our Halloween event will be a family fun weekend jam packed with activities, games and Halloween fun. 

Some of the highlights over the weekend include…

Face Painting

Meet The Mini Beasts

In true Halloween spirit your little ones will get to meet our “Mini Beasts” over the weekend. We will have a selection of creepy crawlies on show so children will get a chance to learn about and view them up close in a safe environment.

Wall of Terror

Our wall of terror is sure to surprise and delight all of the little ones. It is jam-packed with tricks, treats and terrors – you won’t want to miss it.

Colouring Competition

We will be holding colouring competitions throughout the weekend. Our staff will be on hand throughout the day, handing out spot prizes and picking winners. The overall winner will have their work displayed on our Halloween picture board and on our Horkans Facebook page!

Summer Farm

If you attended our Summer Farm event we invite you to bring your plants with you to our Halloween event. We would love to see how your plants are coming along and see how our mini gardeners are progressing. We may even have a little treat in store for everyone who brings their Summer Farm plant to our Halloween event. 

Giant Pumpkin

One on our gardening experts, Leonie, is a gardening fanatic. She loves spending time in the garden and in her poly-tunnel growing all types of fruit and vegetables. Leonie loves experimenting and this year she has grown a giant pumpkin. Be sure to call in to see her creation and guess the weight of the pumpkin.
