For Halloween Everett Turns Petting Zoo to “Fretting” Zoo, Swim Center to “Ghoul Pool”

The City of Everett is getting into the spirit of the season at Forest Park with a couple of fun events. I’ll let the press releases from Kate Reardon do the explaining…

The bone-chill of fall has settled in. The baby animals have moved along to greener pastures. But, something still lurks in the shadowy corners of Forest Park’s Animal Farm.

Thrill-seekers will hardly recognize the barnyard when they dare visit the Haunted Farm: 6-10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26 through Tuesday, Oct. 30. Cost is $8 per person payable at the entrance (cash only please). The Haunted Farm is located inside Forest Park, 802 E. Mukilteo Blvd.

Vampires, zombies and ghouls have transformed the farm into a maze of mysterious frights. Follow the path into the Freak-a-torium and beyond. All are welcome to enter the Haunted Farm, however this fretting zoo is recommended for ages 8+. You can grab a bite from on-site food vendors.

Be there for screaming-good fun – we double-dog dare you!

This event is presented by Everett Parks & Recreation. The Haunted Farm made possible thanks to partners: Mari’s Place, Creative Space for Children & Adults and Agrii Party & Events. For more information call Everett Parks and Recreation at 425-257-8300 ext. 2.

Annual Goblin Splash Oct. 19 welcomes ghosts, pirates, princesses

The Forest Park Swim Center welcomes ghosts, pirates and princesses and other costumed friends ages 3-15 to a fun Halloween-themed swim party from 7-8:30 p.m. on Friday Oct. 19.

Kids and their parents can show off their costumes while playing on-deck games. Fill treat bags with prizes and enjoy the frivolities and refreshments.

Be sure to bring along swim suits and towels for a festive evening dip. Lifeguards will be on duty. Pool rules require an adult to accompany children ages 7 and younger into the water and stay within arm’s reach – one adult for every two children.

In lieu of open swim admission, swimmers can “treat” their community by bringing generous non-perishable food donations for the Volunteers of America Everett Food Bank. Monetary contributions are also accepted and benefit the Parks Scholarship Fund.

Join us and create lasting fun Halloween memories. For regular admission prices and pool rules, please visit or call 425-257-8309.
