Mon, Oct 10th, 2016

Come out for hayrides at Propehcy Creek Park on October 21 and October 22. Hay wagons take passengers to the upper field for a bonfire, a spooky storyteller, and a witch serving up hot cider out of a cauldron! The rides are a fun, festive, family event!

Last wagon leaves the parking lot at 8:45 p.m. Last wagon leaves the bonfire at 9 p.m.
