What a FANTASTIC day for Backyard Boo!

We had such a fun time today seeing all our little friends (and their grown ups!) dressed in their favorite Halloween costumes. Thank you to our guests, members, volunteers and staff who did everything possible to make Hands-on House a spook-tacular place for safe trick-or-treating!
Please tag or share any pics you took of the day, and we can't wait to see you next year!
