A Festival For Ghouls and Goblins of All Ages

How-To Halloween is a family-friendly festival that celebrates creativity, imagination and the innovative spirit of the frightfully fun season.  Discover a wicked wonderland of interactive exhibits, unique vendors, spookalicious food and amazing entertainment!  Our mission is to inspire kids and the ‘kids at heart’ to get goose bumps for the creative process as they participate in many hands-on activities, how-to sessions and immersive experiences.

To commemorate our tenth anniversary, we’re celebrating with a massive event theme as the lost world of DINOSAURS roars to life!  Travel back in time on an exciting adventure as you explore a trail of prehistoric creatures. Meet different species of baby dinos with the guidance of an experienced Raptor Wrangler, and beware of genetically engineered beasts on the loose including a giant T-Rex rampaging through a fleet of Jurassic vehicles.

And once you’re safely indoors, you’ll enjoy up-close experiences with live reptiles like Winston the Tegu, a huge Argentine black & white lizard, along with a collection of critters and adoption opportunities from Saving Scales Reptile Rescue.

Again this year, we’ve teamed up with Impression 5 Science Center to bring you an outdoor festival which is FREE to attend!  Everyone is invited to many outside attractions and festivities happening in the i5 parking lot for absolutely NO COST.  (Please note that regular fees apply for special indoor programming and admission into the science center). 

There is also trick-or-treating for the kids, costume contests with big prizes, appearances by all of your favorite cosplay characters and the Downtown Lansing Zombie Walk.  So mark your calendar, tell your friends and get your costume ready for a dino-day of fun on Saturday October 5th from 11am-5pm on the grounds of Impression 5 Science Center.  Please contact us if you have any questions or if you’d like to participate as a vendor, exhibitor, entertainer or sponsor of How-To Halloween, and we look forward to seeing you there. 

Happy Halloween! - from ROBOT PUMPKIN
