Fort Worth to celebrate 50 years of the Lake Worth Monster

The Lake Worth Monster

Hip Pocket Theatre

Fifty years ago, Fort Worth was abuzz with reported sightings of the Lake Worth Monster. Although the creature —described as a hairy, scaly 7-foot-tall man-goat-beast — has not been seen regularly since that memorable summer of 1969, Fort Worth residents can attend Monster Bash to celebrate the local legend and the habitat he calls home.

The bash is 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 26 at Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge, 4600 Broadview Drive.

The annual Trails and Treats event is combined this year with Monster Bash. Activities will include hayrides, bison viewing, canoeing, vendors, music, food, games, guided interpretive hikes, storytelling and trick-or-treating.

Regular admission prices apply and allow entrance to the park. Additional fees for some activities may apply.
