HORROR FOR THE HOLIDAYS
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ARE ANIMALS ALLOWED?
Only service animals are allowed. In the past we've allowed "well manered" animals. However, because of insurance, we can only allow service animals.
IS THE EVENT APPROPRIATE FOR KIDS?
YES! But it also depends on your spawn. The market does feature monsters walking around acting spooky and all of our our vendors sell horror-related merchandise that may be upsetting for some kids (and some adults). Parental discretion is advised. If you and your kids like Halloween, visiting the market should be okay. Parents must keep kids in their presence at all times.
Kids under 10 are free.
KID FUN! There are also several kid attractions at the market such as a coloring table (under supervision of parents) and an Evil Elf costume opportunity for kids that come dressed as an "evil elf." We'll have a special prize for all of the Evil Elves (TBA).
