Tricks and Treats, the annual Halloween bash at Le Carrousel, is one of the park’s liveliest traditions. Get your costume ready and gather round the carousel for an afternoon of spooky scary festivities. Complete with autumn décor, the area is dressed up right for the season. You may even see one or two haunted friends riding a horse on Le Carrousel.

This year we’re getting a jump on the Halloween season by holding Tricks and Treats on Saturday, October 22 from 1pm-2pm. Everyone is invited come in costume to the season’s ghoul-est party. Kids of all ages will enjoy the free activities, as there will be face painting, pumpkin decorating, magic, music, and trick-or-treating to boot. Afterward, top it all off with lots of rides on your favorite carousel. A single ride is only $3, but a 10-Ride Discount Card still gets you ten rides for only $20.
