Daytonians the final weekend of October is upon us! There are a lot of Halloween events going on, don’t forget to include some physical activity in your schedule. Two very fun and family friendly affairs happening this weekend. Be sure to check them out and take a break from all of the Halloween goodies to enjoy fall’s magic!
Come on out to Charleston Falls Preserve for a ‘Night Around the Campfire’ from 7:45 p.m. – 9:45 p.m on Saturday, October 31, 2015. This will be incredible ambiance for Halloween! Be sure to get there early while it is still daylight and enjoy a nice brisk hike as well. Spend the evening with park district naturalist John DeBoer and special guests, the Stillwater Stargazers, for a good old-fashioned night around the campfire. View the night sky through a telescope, listen to legends and sing songs. While there, also visit the ‘Zoo in the Sky’ storybook trail that will be set up along the path. Have fun with the whole family at this program and make the most of All Hallows’ Eve, extra bonus: the entire event is free!
After a fun evening out on Saturday, don’t forget to set the clocks back one hour so you can join the Metro Dayton Hikers on Sunday, November 1, 2015 at Carriage Hill Farm & Metro Park.
This wonderful group will lead a 2 hour hike that will be approximately 5 miles from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. The hike will tour the incredible Carriage Hill Metro Park and is a fabulous way to connect with fellow community members and get some serious physical activity! It will be appropriate for all ages, the more the merrier so bring the whole family. Once again, extra bonus: the hike is free, hooray!
There it is fellow active event seekers, a weekend full of fall fun and magic! Enjoy a night at the campfire and a daytime hike at two of the community’s marvelous Metro Parks. Let’s get out, get moving, and celebrate the last weekend in October Dayton!
