Wolves and Bison enjoy pumpkin treats at Bearizona

WILLIAMS, AZ (CBS5) -

The crisper air in Northern Arizona is a welcome change for the wolves and bison at Bearizona in Williams, AZ. 

These animals become more active this time of year, and so do tourists as Bearizona celebrates their Howly Growly Owly Bearizona Fall Festival.

Tourists can ride on an open-air bus, called the Howl-O-Ween Express, and watch bears, wolves and bison enjoy pumpkin treats.

Passengers are also encouraged to howl at the wolves.

Jack-o'-lanterns are set up in the "growly bear caves" where cute young bears wrestle with each other in the cool autumn air.

"In the fall the animals just get that lustrous fur coat. They look amazing and they like the cooler weather so they're a little more active," said Jocelyn Monteverde from Bearizona Wildlife Park.

A family came all the way from New Zealand to check out the Grand Canyon and Yosemite. They stopped by Bearizona and braved it as they walked through the haunted mine shaft.

"There was this zombie. This man dressed up as a zombie and he popped out and made this weird noise," said Sean O'Loughlin.

There is also a new exhibit where creepy crawlers greet visitors, including snakes and tarantulas. Tourists will also find nocturnal animals throughout the tunnel.

This is the third year of the fall festival at the Bearizona Wildlife Park.
