Get your tickets now because the creepiest and spookiest family-friendly event is back in Rochester in October.

Quarry Hill Nature Center excitedly announced that the Creatures of the Night event is back on the schedule for 2020.  This year, families can enjoy the event in person and enjoy the event by a fire outside or they can enjoy the event virtually from their couch!

We've been spinning up a web of new ideas for our traditional Creatures of the Night event and invite you to join us at the Prairie House for an evening by the fire. You will encounter costumed creatures, a coyote, deer, turkey, and spider each with a tale to tell of their night life. Following the program, experience some new twists and turns along a self-guided hike where you will spy hidden objects and get a glimpse into the lives of some of the animals who now RIP in the park. - Quarry Hill Nature Center website
