Pumpkin Fest & Haunted Hay Ride

October 14, 2023

Held at our historic Fort Lancaster, the South Platte Valley Historical Park, Pumpkin Fest offered one of the only haunted hayrides in the region, Aztec dancers brought to you by Quetzalcoatl Aztec Dance Fusion, and so much more. 

Kids of all ages enjoyed roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, the petting zoo, tours of the historic grounds – schoolhouse, trappers cabin and homestead house – along with trick or treating in the fort, coffee and cocoa cart, food trucks, churros, kettle corn. The highlight was a long and creepy Haunted Hayride through dark woods.
