Creepy crawlies come to Darlington for Halloween
12:04pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
REPTILES and creepy crawlies are set to invade a Darlington shopping centre this Halloween when the Scary Zoo comes to town.
Visitors to the Cornmill Shopping Centre will have the opportunity to see some of the world’s most scary creatures on Thursday, October 31.
The Halloween-themed day will feature activities including the chance to feed some of the exotic creatures, under professional supervision, and beetle racing.
Last year’s event saw snakes, lizards, tarantulas, scorpions and giant snails take over the Cornmill.
Visitors will have the chance to learn about the creatures and to take part in question and answer sessions with Petwise Zoo’s handlers.
Susan Young, centre manager at the Cornmill, said: “The pet zoos have been a popular event with all members of the family over the years but the Halloween event, being scary, creepy and thoroughly entertaining, is always extra special.
“There’s also an educational aspect to the event and visitors will have the chance to learn about important issues such as conservation.”
