FestiFall

Pumpkin catapulting, carving and seed guessing are just a few of the activities at FestiFall. The event features many family friendly activities, including make-and-take craft booths, kids' games, hayrides through the campgrounds, a campsite decorating contest and bluegrass music. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own decorated or carved pumpkins for judging. If you wish, your carved pumpkins can also be used on the Candlelight Walk.

Candlelight Walk

7:15 - 8:30 p.m.

The Candlelight Walk takes visitors along 2.2 miles of candle-lit trail through the deep woods of Newton Hills. The trail will be solely lit by candles and carved pumpkins. Walkers will encounter many surprises along the trail including musicians and colorful characters from the past. Walkers may begin the self-led adventure anytime between 7:15 and 8:30 p.m.
