There will be appearances by Billy the Marlin and the Marlins Mermaids, Creepy Cookie Decorating, ghostly tunes and activities from spooky DJs, arts and crafts stations, a Witch Hunt Raffle and a bounce house.
Halloween Spooktacular from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Jungle Island, 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, Miami. Adults and kids ages 3-10 are $13 ($7 for kids in costume). Call 305-400-7000 or visit jungleisland.com/halloween. Jungle Island is off I-395 between downtown Miami and South Beach on the MacArthur Causeway.
So if you have little ones, give it a look see. Or if you just want to drool over the sight of the Mermaids, I guess that will be okay. Just don't touch. Then again if you do touch let us all know how it feels to be tazed.
