Thursday, October 12 | 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Enjoy Halloween Fair with lights and sounds limited to reduce stimulus. Trams will be available on the haunted trail on a first-come, first-served basis for mobility needs. All-Abilities Night packs in all of the same event fun, including the family-friendly haunted trail, Little Green Choo rides, food trucks, and games.

The number of tickets sold will be reduced to allow for shorter, more accommodating wait times. Both the train and tram can accommodate wheelchairs. Service animals are welcome. All-Abilities Night is just one more way the Lorain County Metro Parks strives to make our parks and events accessible to and inclusive of ALL Lorain County residents.
