BOOtanical event at Clark Gardens

Halloween is a night for children and adults alike to dress up as their heroes, favorite characters and scary zombies but at Clark Gardens pets are invited too. On Oct. 31 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. join Clark Gardens for the annual BOOtanical.

Activities at BOOtanical include games, crafts, a fortune teller, face painting, movies in the chapel, the haunted train depot, music and food. The Mineral Wells Ram Theatre will entertain visitors with an educational experience known as “Walk on the Wild Side.” Groups walk through the garden while students act out nocturnal animals.

The costume competition is the most popular attraction of the evening. More than 100 contestants enter the contest ranging from infants to adults vying for prizes awarded in each age category. The age categories are 0-3 years of age; 4-6 years of age; 7-10 years of age and 16 years and up. Contestants strut down the Channel Gardens catwalk to show off their costume in hopes of being crowned the winner; then the crowning of Mr. & Mrs. “Barker” County and Mr. & Mrs. “Palo Pinto Paws” County tops off the evening.

The event benefits the Center of Life and CARE (Community Animal Rescue Effort) organizations. Admission into the event is a non-perishable food donation or pet food donation. Cash is accepted and donated to Center of Life or CARE

The public is encouraged to drop off candy donations at the Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce. For more information about BOOtanical go to www.clarkgardens.org or contact Lauren at publicevents@clarkgardens.com or 940-682-4856.

Clark Gardens is located at 567 Maddux Road, Weatherford, TX 76088.
