James City County Harvest Festival featuring the Haunted Forest

hauntedforestOur family has attended  The Haunted Forest for many years. While overshadowed by Howl O Scream at Busch Gardens this volunteer effort hosted by James City County has always been great fun for our kids ( and the adults ! ).
It has moved this year to Chickahominy Riverfront Park from  it’s previous venue at Upper County Park.  The date for the event is Saturday, October 17, 2009 from 2-8pm.

James City County has combined The Haunted Forest with the Fall Harvest Festival this year . It will feature  local bluegrass and folk music, a DJ and entertainment,  crafts,  agriculture and fair foods, rides, art and craft vendors, a Farmer‟s Market, fall food favorites and more!
Begin the afternoon by making the biggest, the best, and maybe the only scarecrow in your neighborhood. Stuff „em, paint „em, name „em, and take „em home! Make this a family activity and create a scarecrow together.
Stay for the Haunted Forest if you dare to venture out after dark and experience the journey for the fun, for the fright, for the things that go bump in the night!
Children 6 and younger, along with their parents, will especially enjoy Goblinville with its moonwalks and a pumpkin patch hayride traveling through a maze of pumpkin faces and Nursery Rhyme Characters. In the Fall Fest Family Area you‟ll also enjoy the costume contest, pumpkin bowling, arts and crafts and games. Don‟t forget your camera!

Info: www.jccEgov.com/recreation  or 259-3200.
  Journey through the forest: $1/person. (Wear a costume and take the journey for half-price!) Parking $3 a car.

Scarecrow Stuffing, 2-6pm, $17/scarecrow, , first come, first served while supplies last!
