New celebration of autumn includes return of horse-drawn wagon rides in the park
Brisk air, changing colors, spooky silhouettes, costumes, wagon rides and cider – Geauga Park District’s new, free Fall Fest will have all this and more for the whole family to enjoy.
What: Fall Fest
When: Friday & Saturday
October 10 & 11 – 5 to 9 p.m.
Where: Frohring Meadows,
16780 Savage Road, Bainbridge Township
First-come, first-served horse-drawn wagon rides are one of the most exciting features as they haven’t been offered in the parks in almost a decade. Clydesdales Brutus and Rosebud will take you around the paved trail, clip clop, clip clop, while a naturalist shares all the signs of the season. Go right to the ticket booth when you arrive to get your name in for a designated time.
Even those who don’t ride will have no problem keeping busy with hands-on activity stations (including make-and-take slime), a puppet show for the little ones, a corn box (like a sandbox, but filled with corn kernels), hiking, sack racing, face painting, a campfire, s’mores, popcorn, cider and more!
Then at 8 p.m. please join naturalists for a night hike into the woods, where you’ll let your eyes adjust and then delve into the darkness unaided by a flashlight. (Don’t be scared; trust us, it works.)
To make sure you don’t miss your favorite fall happenings, please view the detailed schedule here.
Registration is not required. Simply call 440-286-9516 in advance if you have questions.
Psst…! If the Frohring lot fills and you’re redirected to the overflow parking at the Army National Guard armory (7600 Washington St.), there will be a shuttle available 5:30-9:30 p.m. But consider this: you could also HIKE to Fall Fest! The wooded trail is about 1.5 miles. A sign will be posted at the hike’s entrance, just beyond the old baseball field at the armory. We hope some of you choose to enjoy the option!
