Grab your broomstick and fly over to Lincoln Children’s Museum for a night of eek-o-friendly activities at the Second Annual Tenneco of Seward’s Happy HallowGreen on Thursday, Oct. 23, from 6-8 p.m.

Happy HallowGreen is a not-so-scary way for the whole household to celebrate the holiday. On the Main Level of the Museum, kids will parade to more than 20 treat stops collecting goodies along the way. To participate in the treat parade, guests must purchase a $3 reusable, recyclable HallowGreen bag from the Museum. All proceeds from the event directly support the exhibits, programs, camps and events hosted by the Museum.

The unique theme of this Halloween party and its activities will help kids think green even as the leaves turn brown. There will not be ghosts or goblins, but kids can touch a real spider, snake and other creepy crawlers. Some earth-friendly community educators attending this spooktacular skelebration include: Nebraska Game & Parks, Insect Science Club, University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s School of Biological Studies and local, carnivorous plant enthusiast Ben Rush and a station where Vermiculture Composting will show and tell how worms aid in the process of composting. Globally known for its dedication to clean air through innovative and safe advancements in ride performance, event sponsor Tenneco of Seward will be on-site with a special display to teach families about carbon emissions. EcoStores Nebraska will share ideas and example of ways to repurpose household items and turn them into festive, fall decorations.

While digging into their candy, visitors can experience other treats and special appearances by celebrities, including live music by the Mighty Magic Pants on the museum’s Performing Arts Stage at 7 p.m. and a chance to get a photo with Miss Kool-Aid Days 2015 Brook Lundemann who will quench kids’ thirst with free packet of Kool-Aid.

Hosted inside the Museum, families can enjoy a frightfully fun night in a safe environment, rain or shine. Tickets are not required for this event, but regular admission or Museum membership applies. Although it’s not required, guests of all ages are encouraged to dress in costume. For more information about the event, visit or call (402) 477-4000.
