Fall Fest at Fayette to go ‘Disney’

GARDEN – “All Things Disney” will be the theme of the seventh annual Fall Fest, taking place on Oct. 6, at Fayette Historic State Park in Garden. The annual event is hosted by the Department of Natural Resources Parks and Recreation Division staff.

The park will be transformed into “The Happiest Place On Earth – Northern Edition” for weekend visitors. Guests are encouraged to dress as a favorite Disney character such as Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck, a ghost from a haunted mansion or even a favorite Disney princess. Campers are encouraged to join the campsite decorating contest.

Special activities include “Cars” hayrides between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., and special “Disneythemed” activities around the park’s historic town site from noon until 2:30 p.m.

Park day users can travel through the campground on one of the hayrides. A Halloween costume contest begins at 2:45 p.m., followed by trick-or-treating throughout the campground. A ghost hunt through the town site will start at 11 p.m.

Coffee, hot chocolate and doughnuts will be served in the campground from 9 – 10 a.m. on Oct. 7, when the winner of the campsite decorating contest will be announced.
