Reston Halloween House & Trick or Treat Trail

The following was sent to us by The Reston Association:

Looking for a Halloween event that’s exciting, fun for the whole family, festive and (sh-h-) a bit educational?  The make your plans now for Reston’s Halloween House and Trick or Treat Trail.  You’ll be treated, really, to friendly characters along the trail who will give out treats. You are likely to meet a live owl and the animals who live inside Nature House – the year-round environmental educational facility at Walker Nature Education Center. “This is a creative Halloween event,” said Katie Shaw, manager of Walker Nature Education Center. “We have an emphasis on the environment here, so you will meet the animals and characters that share the woods with us.”

There will also be booths set up for fun activities and you can purchase snacks onsite.  Wear your fun, friendly costume.

Organizers say the event will happen rain or shine – thanks to the new Nature House.  Last year, Reston Association could not host the annual Halloween Trick or Treat Trail due to the construction of Nature House. 

In response to requests from people who attended the Halloween Trail over the last 12 years, there will be no standing in line to buy tickets at the gate.   All will be sold in advance either by going to Nature House in person or buying online.
