Time for some pumpkin fun!


Whether you’re 8 or 88, seeing the first pumpkin of the year makes you realize fall and Halloween are on the way! These two events offer pumpkins galore and all the other fun things that make fall in Arkansas amazing!

Grab your favorite little “goblin” and head to Village Creek State Park in Wynne on Oct. 28 for the park’s annual Trick or Treat at Village Creek State Park. Kids of all ages will find something fun to do with a variety of nature-themed Halloween programs, story time around the campfire and nature stations. Local businesses sponsor each decorated campsite and offer goodies for the kids. Costumes are encouraged but not required…and no scary costumes allowed. For details, give the park a call at 870-238-9406.
