Colorado’s Butterfly Pavilion announced today the return of Bug-A-Boo, it’s safe, indoor trick-or-treating event, from Oct. 18 through Oct. 31. Halloween revelers can put on a costume and enjoy a trick-or-treating experience that is educational and fun, while adhering to state and local safety guidance. Hours for trick or treating will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (with the last entry at 4 p.m.) daily from Oct. 18 through Oct. 29. On Oct. 30 and 31, Butterfly Pavilion will extend its hours and be open until 8:20 p.m. (with the last entry at 7:00 p.m.).
“As a non-profit organization, Butterfly Pavilion prides itself on being a resource for the community,” said Russ Pecoraro, Butterfly Pavilion’s Vice President of Marketing. “A lot of families are looking for some sense of normalcy and something fun and safe to do. We think Bug-A-Boo is the perfect event for family fun this Halloween.”
From a safety standpoint, Butterfly Pavilion has used its expertise in exhibit design to create a safe, physically-distanced trick-or-treating experience where kids can trick or treat traditionally, as well as providing goodie bag stations. Only 20 guests are allowed into the building every 20 minutes, reducing crowds and providing plenty of space to move around. Because of the limitations on guest capacity, reservations are required and can be made at https://butterflies.org/event/bug-a-boo/. Guests are required to wear appropriate face coverings or masks with costumes to visit Butterfly Pavilion. Halloween and costume masks are not considered adequate protection.
Bug-A-Boo allows kids to explore Butterfly Pavilion, whose many creepy-crawlies make it the perfect backdrop for trick or treating. Butterfly Pavilion will also transform Colorado Backyard into a spooky Halloween adventure. Because it is indoors, Bug-A-Boo is ideal for toddlers having their first trick-or-treating experience because they’re not subjected to the weather, and they don’t have to walk too far.
Bug-A-Boo is included with General Admission and free for current Butterfly Pavilion members. Tickets for Bug-A-Boo will go on sale October 9th and will only be available while supplies last. With limited availability, be sure to purchases tickets online ahead of time at https://butterflies.org/event/bug-a-boo/.
