Trick-or-treat and see chimpanzees in the Blue Ridge Mountains! Join Project Chimps for a daytime Halloween sanctuary tour designed just for kids! On Friday and Saturday, children are invited to "Chimp or Treat" in costume, tour this beautiful sanctuary for former research chimpanzees, and take home candy and fun treats.

Tickets are $10 per child and one adult. Children under the age of two will be admitted at no charge. Adult-only tickets are $25 each.

- A children's "treat" bag for their goodies (including a Teal Pumpkin option for non-food goodies only);

On both Friday and Saturday, tours begin on the half hour starting at 11 a.m. The last tour begins at 1:30 p.m. You can choose from the available tour times at ticket purchase. We are offering opportunities for this event to families who could not otherwise afford the ticket price, if you would like to contribute and underwrite the cost of a ticket for another child, please add this as a donation during check out. Donated tickets will be provided to various Fannin County coordinators who work with families and children in http://need.Please note that the 1+ mile walking tour is similar to a moderate hike. The tours can be challenging for young children, less active adults and those with limited mobility. If you have guests in your group who may not be able to complete a moderate hike, PLEASE request mobility assistance when purchasing tickets. 

We hope you can join us for this safe and enriching Halloween experience!
