Under the Bicentennial Pavilion, guests will find the whimsical Pumpkin Town, with a ghoulish cast of characters hosting many family-friendly activities. Little witches and wizards will meet new characters like the Leeward Sisters, Terra, Wisp, and Bubbles and their wicked Aunty Guzzle as they conjure up spells and potions. Watch Professor Pumpkin perform mystifying magic tricks at the Creepy Crafts Building. ZooBoo visitors can meet the not-so-scary animals at Jack’s Barn, including Agape Therapeutic Miniature Horses. Like last year, ZooBoo has black kittens available for adoption through Indiana Animal Care Services. The Candy Corn Factory Mirror Maze makes a haunting return with thrills and smiles hidden behind every corner.
