North Mississippi Fish Hatchery Halloween Program

JACKSON - This year the Visitor EducationCenter (VEC) at the North Mississippi Fish Hatchery will host the annual Halloween program on October 20th at 2:00 p.m. Supplies are provided, so young artists can create decoupage pumpkins using trophy fish, monster bucks, fishing lures, beautiful flowers, colorful birds, creepy bugs, and much more! (Note to parents: This can be a little messy. Make sure the artists bring older clothes for the crafts.) After the crafts, participants will participate in a scavenger hunt uncovering the "fishing bait" hidden inside and outside the Center.

Program is free with price of admission, but registration is limited to 25. Admission is $2.50 for adults ages 18-59, and $2.00 for youngsters ages 3-17 and adults over the age of 60. If you have any questions, call the VEC at (662) 563-8068.

The VEC is part of the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks and is located at Exit 233 east off I-55.
