600 Sunset Dr, McAllen. This event is free with park admission.(956) 681-3370. Join us for a fun Halloween adventure at Quinta Mazatlán’s 2nd annual “Sticks & Bones” Trail, sponsored by Drs. Gerling and Ryan of the McAllen Orthodontic Group.
The Halloween Day Party in the Park will be on Saturday, October 30th, from 9am to 1pm. This event is free with park admission and will feature over 30 art skeleton installations on the trail, live music, food and crafts!
Children can participate in activities such as crafting a skeleton hand and making a mask. Don’t worry about food and entertainment because live performances from local artists and Randerie’s food truck will be there to help curb everyone’s appetite after you’re done shopping with our amazing vendors.
The quarter-mile Sticks & Bones Trail will start with tips and advice on all things bones, from what they are to how to strengthen them. Enjoy meeting the vertebrate families featuring Reptiles, Amphibians, Mammals, Fish, and Birds. All children will receive a free Sticks & Bones educational worksheet.
Among the community-favorite installations come new features, such as the Ofrenda Exhibit paying respect to South Texas animals. The outdoor altar will feature a collection of plants and animal objects to honor the memory of animals that have gone extinct. Another outdoor exhibit features the 6-foot-long serpent from Tim Burton's film "Beetlejuice." There will be so much to see and so much to take pictures of, so snap a selfie with any of the installations or at our pumpkin patch photo-op. Don’t forget to tag us @QuintaMazatlan!
The Sticks and Bones Trail will open on October 23rd and will run to mid-November during all park hours: Tuesday to Saturday 8am to 5pm and Thursday evenings until 7pm.
