She said the children always come up with really fun, clever costumes, like one little tyke last year.
“Last year we had an excellent costume, a little boy, his grandma made his costume and he was a scarecrow and he had real hay sticking out and all these little plastic ravens all over him,” she said. “That was awesome.”

Wilson said there will be a host of other things going on like the Wump Mucket Puppet Show, horse and wagon rides, a hay bale maze, the Lakota robotics team will be showing their inventions, the obligatory pumpkin roll, games, face painting and the list goes on.
“We have the not-so-scary haunted trail through the woods at Keehner Park,” she said. “The kids are greeted by costumed characters along the trail and they are given candy and trinkets. That’s always kind of fun, it kind of takes after the big, scary, haunted things but this is really meant for young kids.”
Wilson said when the weather cooperates they have as many at 5,000 fest-goers show up at the 123-acre park on Barret Road.
