Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium Presents Crawloween!

Celebrate Halloween with "ghoulies and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night!"


Wednesday, October 31, 2012
(New Orleans, La.)- Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium invites guests to celebrate Halloween "infestivities" at Crawloween on Wednesday, October 31. Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes, learn about the myths behind some "scary" critters, make a bug craft and enjoy Halloween treats.

Staff entomologists will be on hand to talk about myths and legends behind some of the most misunderstood arthropods including roaches, spiders, and maggots. Visitors can also enter the "Guess How Many Maggots are in the Jar" contest. The three closest guesses will receive gift certificates to Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium's Flea Market.

The Halloween bug fun awaits guests from 10:00am till 5:00pm. Guests are encouraged to trick or treat at presentation stations for spider rings, Crawloween stickers and other fun treats. Children (ages 12 and under) dressed in a bug-themed costume will receive a $3 discount off of admission. All Halloween activities are included in general admission cost.
