Goblin Walks, part 2

Our second night of Goblin Walks went just as well, if not better, than the first.  Over all, we had over 500 visitors come through to enjoy the skits, decorations and snacks.

If you didn’t make it out, here are some of the things you missed.

Below, several of the actors take a break before the evening’s events begin.  On the ends we have the raccoon and bear, stars of the best drumming on trash cans I’ve ever heard, with the waiter from the Roadkill Cafe and one of the wolves holding up the railing in the middle.

The Tortoise and the Hare, who extoll the benefits of each species in how they handle winter.

Red Riding Hood and two more of the wolves she encounters en route to Grandma’s house.  “Ahh-ooooo!  Wolves in the moonlight” – to the tune of “Werewolf in London” – is STILL going through my head!

We had a number of spiders lining the trails.

This was one of the favorite pumpkins.

And this pumpkin was rather cannibalistic.

At the end of the night, the Friends of Dahlem had given away all but about a dozen donuts – that’s over 600 donuts into the hungry maws of visitors!  Cider (hot and cold) and coffee (hot) rounded off the treats as people were entertained by Evelyn’s Pumpkin Carols.

If you missed Goblin Walks this year, you will want to be sure to come out next October.  It’s good fun for everyone – and you might just learn something about wildlife you didn’t know before!
