Traditional Halloween wagon rides return

Bats in the Cornfield

No worries, it’s not scary. We’re just serving a Halloween twist on some fun nature exploration. You and your family are invited to get into the spooky spirit with a tractor-pulled wagon ride that focuses on outdoor creepy-crawlies.

Halloween Wagon Rides will run on Sundays, October 14 and 21 from 1 to 4:30 p.m at Swine Creek Reservation, Woods Edge.

Free passes will be available on site to ensure first-come, first-served boarding for the rides, each about a half hour. Naturalist Linda Gilbert said guests will also see Halloween-themed skits about Geauga County’s natural history performed by Park District volunteers.

“Hear snippets about the natural history of Swine Creek, encountering some characters along the way,” Linda said. “Lots of families look forward to this every year; only in the past few years have we tailored them for Halloween. It’s not scary – we just serve the Halloween twist on them. It’s fun.”

Costumes are welcome, and registration is not required for this free, fit-for-all-ages program. Though not wheelchair / stroller accessible, strollers and wheelchairs can be safely left at the trailhead so that all people can ride the wagons. No pets, please. Rides last about a half hour and will be cancelled in case of bad weather. Call 440-286-9516 with questions.

Geauga Park District is online, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
