Children 12 and under will be treated to free admission at over a dozen museums at the 4th annual Balboa Park Halloween Family Day on Saturday, October 27, 2012. In addition to free children’s admission with a paid adult, participating museums and cultural attractions will present a spooktacular array of hands-on activities, crafts, costume parades, tours, storytelling and other free goodies from 11 am to 3 pm. Adults also receive discounted admission when they pick up a Stay-for-the-Day Pass, a one-day excursion pass allowing one adult admission to five park museums for a low price of $39.
Among the highlights of this year’s park-wide Halloween Family Day is a doggie costume parade and contest at the Lily Pond, a Great Pumpkin parachute drop at the San Diego Air & Space Museum, a creepy nocturnal Critter Cavern at the Natural History Museum and activities that explore legendary local ghosts at the San Diego History Center.
