Fairytale Town, 3901 Land Park Drive in Sacramento, will be transformed into Middle Earth for this year’s Safe and Super Halloween event at the storybook park. The magical world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” will come to life for three nights of family fun on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 25, 26 and 27 from 5 – 9 p.m.

Families will enjoy exploring Bilbo Baggins’ hobbit hole, peeking into the elven kingdom of Rivendell and journeying to the Lonely Mountain. Seventeen candy stations will be scattered throughout the park for trick-or-treaters to visit. The evening also features hands-on activities and a costume parade.

Puppet Art Theater Company will perform “Winnie the Witch” in the Children’s Theater at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. In this blacklight puppet show, Winnie the witch loves Halloween, especially the candy.

On her way to pick up sweets on Candy Island she discovers Willard the wizard trying to ruin Halloween by making the world’s candy supply taste like Brussels sprouts.

With the help of the audience and her trusty broomstick, Winnie must dodge dancing ghosts, batty bats and silly skeletons to save Halloween. Tickets for the puppet show are $1 for Fairytale Town members and $2 for nonmembers.

This year marks the 27th anniversary of Fairytale Town’s Safe and Super Halloween.

Tickets are $9 for members and $12 for nonmembers. Children ages 1 and under are free. Tickets are available for purchase online at fairytaletown.org, by phone at 916-808-7462 or in person at the Fairytale Town box office.

Safe and Super Halloween: A Hobbit Adventure is sponsored by Smile Business Products, ScholarShare College Savings Plan, PeopleFinders.com, Make A Smile Dentistry, SAFE Credit Union and Arista Preschool.
