Halloween Spooktacular


Join us for a day of Halloween-themed activities at the Hi-Desert Nature Museum’s Halloween Spooktacular! This event will include frightfully fun games, face painting and hands-on crafts. Keep your eye out for a snake, tarantula or hissing cockroach from the museum’s mini-zoo making an appearance. Costumes are encouraged. Halloween Spooktacular is free to the public and trick-or-treat candy will be available.

At 11:00 a.m. in the courtyard behind the museum the Town will be presenting its Howl-oween Costume Pet Parade! Bring your pet and join in the fun. Prizes will be given out for the funniest and most original costumes, and also the best animal/owner look-alike. Pet adoption will be sponsored by the Yucca Valley Animal Shelter.

For more than 45 years the Hi-Desert Nature Museum has been dedicated to the process of education by exploring the natural, artistic and cultural heritage of the Morongo Basin and High Desert.

The Hi-Desert Nature Museum is operated by the Town of Yucca Valley and located in the Town’s Community Center Complex at 57116 Twentynine Palms Highway. The Museum is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Admission is free; donations support the educational mission of the Museum.
