It’s almost a month to Halloween now, but the holiday events will be starting relatively soon. Some are even advertising already. Here follows a look ahead at a handful of the events you can expect to find in, and nearby, Stirling across the coming month of October.
From October 13-28 Blair Drummond Safari Park will be hosting “HalloWild,” which it describes as a “terrifyingly great day out.” The event will feature a range of activities.
The event will host Halloween style “fright rooms” where those daring enough to enter can try to search for Alice. These rooms were designed by Hollywood production company White Rabbit Designs.
A safari spooky tent where families can meet a range of creatures from creepy crawlies to owls will also be featured, and there will even be a “trick or treat trail” suitable for all ages, plus much more.
From October 27-28 Dobbies, Stirling, will be hosting a “Halloween Spooktacular” which offers creative activities and games for kids. There will also be a fancy dress competition across these events with a prize for the best costume.
Also from October 27-28 the Battle of Bannockburn Visitor Centre will be hosting “The Stoats Creepy Crawl.” This event will be held from 10am onwards and will cost £5 per child aged 3 and above. It will feature spooky trails, puzzles and games.
On Halloween night, from 5-9pm the Hellix Stadium will be hosting a “Spooky Halloween Hunt.” Follow “Beast Hunter Jim” as he takes you on a guided tour of the “dangerous landscape of the Kelpies.” You will come across strange creatures and noises on your travels to free the “Kelpie unicorn.”
This tour will take place across four shows throughout the day and is suitable for early teenagers and younger, with the exception of the first tour which is suitable for seven-year-olds and younger. Children’s tickets cost £10 and adult tickets cost £5. Early bird tickets are available if purchased before September 30. Tickets can be purchased online or by phone.
