Step into the wonder and beauty of butterflies, insects, spiders and their other many-legged friends at the Bug Ball!
Your little bugaboos will be able to play games, create spook-tacular crafts and take home lots of loot after they visit the many hand-painted Treat Houses. Families can spy on the amazing Owl Butterflies, which are only active during dusk and dawn, munch on a spook-tacular spread that will include themed menu items like creepy pizza fingers, scream cheese, eerie pudding, pumpking punch and more. You can even dance to Monster Jams!
Admission into the Butterfly House, activities, light refreshments, crafts, treats and goody bags are included in the event ticket price. Space is limited and reservations are required. Cost is $14 per person, $12 for members of the Missouri Botanical Garden, and free for infants 12 months and younger.
Friday, October 26 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. or Saturday, October 27 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Parents! Bring your little ones for this fun parent & me activity at Castlewood Stables. You'll participate in pony rides, equestrian interactions, enjoy a farm animal petting area and a craft session. Activities will be held rain or shine in an indoor facility. During October, this event will be Halloween-themed, and kids are welcome to wear costumes (as long as they won't get in the way of them riding a horse).
