Arboretum Spooktacular

By Rachel Williams, UCF Today


To celebrate the ghoulish Halloween season, the University of Central Florida Arboretum is hosting a ‘spooktacular’ event.

For outdoor lovers, the UCF Arboretum on Friday will host its second-annual Spooktacular. The overnight event will feature a Trail of Horror throughout the Arboretum’s nature paths and boardwalk, an outdoor screening of the movie Sinister, photo booth, ghost stories by the fire, camping and other activities.

“This is a chance for students and the community to engage with the Arboretum in a fun and social setting,” said Jacques Werleigh, program assistant at the UCF Arboretum that’s known for its nature trails and community garden. “You just have to have fun – no volunteering or research is necessary.”

About 100 people are expected to attend Spooktacular, Werleigh said. Costumes are encouraged, and those who plan on staying overnight should bring camping supplies and food. Festivities will begin at 7:30 p.m.
