The tour presents the history of Early Eureka Springs and includes a guided ghost hunt of the most haunted spaces and ends with a chilling ghost story told by candlelight while surrounded by the limestone bluff.
Turpentine Creek Howl-O-Ween Spooktacular
Halloween can be a hair-raising experience, especially when you throw over 100 big cats into the mix. TCWR’s annual Halloween party is the only time you can view our cats in the dark of night. The main compound is open for the whole family to experience the night habits of our lions, tigers, cougars, bobcats, and more. Games, food, and a children’s costume contest are all part of the one of a kind experience, and provides fun for all ages. The Spooktacular is the Saturday night before Halloween (Oct. 24th) from 7-9 PM. Cost: $20 for adults, $15 for teenagers, $10 for children 12-under, seniors, and military. Children under 3 are free.
Trick-or-Treat on White Street
On October 31st, Eureka’s most popular and festive street for traditional trick-or-treating on Halloween night. This is the place to be social and show off your costume; a special treat for children and adults alike!
Zombie Crawl & Day of the Dead Parade
On November 1, 2015 – the Day of the Dead – Eureka Springs will host its 4TH ANNUAL Zombie Crawl & Day of the Dead Parade. The parade is free and open to everyone. A creeping parade procession of funeral hearses, doomsday vehicles, Halloween floats, and post-mortem street performers will lead the hungry horde of the undead. Zombie participants are only asked to bring two (or more) cans of food to benefit the Flint Street Food Bank. We welcome anyone that wants to be a zombie for the crawl, as well as zombie-themed vehicles, Day of the Dead floats, and street performers for the parade.
