Tahquamenon Falls State Park will host its 11th annual Harvest Fest at the Lower Falls on Saturday, Oct. 13. Activities begin at 10 a.m. and include hayrides with Smokey Bear, a camper chili cook-off, kids’ crafts, apple cider tasting and a costume contest. Campsite decorating will be judged beginning at 1 p.m. Trick-or-treating through both the Overlook and Riverbend campgrounds begins at 5 p.m.
“Harvest Fest is always a fun-filled event. Visitors enjoy dressing up for the costume contest and walking through the decorated campground. Campers do a spectacular job decorating their sites,” said Tahquamenon Falls State Park interpreter Theresa Neal. “Some of them begin planning months in advance.”
