MADISON - There will be multiple opportunities for costumed Halloween revelers to hike along trails lit by jack-o-lanterns or other luminaries, some with visits from "non-scary" costumed wild creatures, and then enjoying hot cider 'smores and other treats around bonfires at Wisconsin State Park properties October 19, 20 and 27. Many of the events also offer games, arts and crafts, storytelling and music.
