ArBOOretum is happening rain or shine! All activities will be taking place under tents, inside the Nature Center, and under the building overhang. At ArBOOretum all the little goblins and ghouls and their parents are invited to play, learn, and have an enchanting day enjoying Halloween festivities at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center. Kids will love the Trick or Treat Trail where they learn about native creatures while walking one of our nature paths.

To ensure smooth members’ entry, please purchase your membership before 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 23.

  • Trick or treating
  • Hay rides (weather pending)
  • Live owls, reptiles and other critters
  • Petting zoo 
  • Pumpkin decorating
  • Face painting
  • …and more!
Come have a ghostly good time in our SUPER-natural environment.
