The annual Halloween celebration at McFarlane Park will be held the weekend of September 22-23. This year’s theme is Star Wars: The Forest Awakens featuring a day full of activities that begin in the morning and end after dark! Activities include: pumpkin carving, a scavenger hunt, apple bobbing, costume and campsite decorating contests, a parade, trick or treating, and of course, hayrides. Hayrides will happen after dark and you may encounter Star Wars characters, spaceships, etc. on your journey. A chili potluck will be served at noon, just bring a side dish and a drink!
