WILLIAMS - There are many fun, family-oriented activities the entire month of October during the Howly Growly Owly Fall Festival at Bearizona Wildlife Park that benefit domestic dogs and some of Arizona's injured or confiscated wildlife.

Howly Growly Owly Fall Festival Fun is for the family, and benefits animals in Arizona.

A portion of gate admission and all pumpkin patch proceeds from the Howl-O-Ween event will go to support local Williams dog rescue, Meant To Rescue, as well as Adobe Mt Wildlife Center Auxiliary in Phoenix.

Bearizona recognizes the important work that animal rescues and rehabilitators do here in the community and throughout the state of Arizona. They have chosen these non-profit groups to support during their Howly Growly Owly Fall Festival.

Visitors are sure to enjoy a Howly windowless bus ride through the park, the only time the public will get to go through with their windows down.

Patrons can howl with the wolves in the Alaskan tundra wolf enclosure and watch the wolves interact with a special Howl-O-Ween enrichment treat.

The Howl-O-Ween Express Bus departs the Fort Bearizona parking lot at 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. and travels through American burro, American bison, Alaskan tundra wolves, Alaskan dall sheep, white bison, big horn sheep, and adult black bears on the tour.

People of all ages can frolic with the animals in the Bearizona barnyard petting zoo or pick out a pumpkin from the Fort Bearizona pumpkin patch with a $10 donation to one of our selected animal charities.

Bearizona's straw bale maze holds some light-hearted fun, while braver kids can explore the haunted Growly bear cave. Guests should plan to catch an Owly Raptor Show at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. or 3 p.m., after visiting Fort Bearizona's baby and smaller animals.

Fall is a great time to visit Bearizona Wildlife Park, which is situated on 160 acres of ponderosa pine forest in historic Williams just south of I40 exit 165. This time of year, the animals are active in the cooler weather and are all sporting lustrous fur coats in preparation for winter.
