Hiding for over a year, the Quogeness Monster has re-emerged from its slumber at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge.
The recycled monster is making its third-year appearance at the Quogue Wildlife's annual Spooky and Enchanted walks, which are being held this and next weekend.
According to the wildlife refuge, the Qugueness Monster is the brainchild of local artists and Quogue Wildlife staff, first created three years ago out of an old rowboat, tarps and other junk lying around the refuge.
This year, the Quogueness Monster was brought back to life with spray foam and has moved to a new location, according to the refuge.
The refuge is keeping his location a secret with hopes that those attending its Halloween walks will be able to spot him.
The Enchanted Forest Trail event will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and on Oct. 27 from noon to 3 p.m. It is geared for children ages 2 to 7 and includes a guided tour of whimsical, fun, and educational characters on forest trails, as well as games and activities. The cost is $10.00 per person.
The Spooky Trail, which is open to children 7 and older, is open Oct. 25 and Oct. 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The cost is $15 per person.
Reservations for the walks can be made by calling 631-653-4771.
