Bats, raccoons, owls, possums, flying squirrels, and other nocturnal “beasts” come alive at night while we are sleeping. Join us in the UT Gardens, Knoxville, for Bewitching Beasts—your chance to learn about and perhaps see some of these elusive animals and insects! Children and their parents are invited to dress up in costumes, enjoy food-free trick or treating, and take part in arts and crafts, raffles, and demonstrations throughout the Gardens. The event is designed to avoid the feared sugar rush and allow those with food allergies to participate in safe, seasonal, food-free activities. Prepare to be bewitched!
