Wildlife earn their stripes
10:32am Tuesday 16th October 2012 in Winchester
VISITORS to Marwell Wildlife are in for a spook-tacular time this Hallowe’en as the park puts on some fiendishly good entertainment and activities.
Pumpkin carving, mini beasts, storytelling, a spooky ghost train and creepy decorations will all see the park, near Colden Common, transformed for the celebrations from October 27 to November 4.
But it won’t just be the staff and visitors getting in the spirit of things, with animals including penguins, chipmunks, giraffes, gibbons and tigers all enjoying Hallowe’en enrichment, getting to tuck into special treats.
On October 31 itself, youngsters are being encouraged to put on their best spooky costumes for Marwell’s first Kiddies’ Catwalk, with the best-dressed visitor winning a digital camera.
