Lake Carlos State Park hosts Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 1
Lake Carlos State Park will hold its annual Fall Festival from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, with harvest games, archery and butter-making among its activities.
Activities will take place at the Lakeview Group Camp. They are all free, although visitors do need a state park pass to enter the park, which costs $7 per day or $35 for a year pass. Children must be at least 8 years old for archery.
Harvest games include apple on a string, tug of war, sack races, and giant Jenga. There will also be fall arts and craft, fires and s'mores, and self-guided hikes amid fall colors.
The Prairie Lakes Audubon Chapter will be on hand to discuss fall birds, and participants can spot migrating birds on a short self-guided hike.
The park also offers a variety of trails through rolling hills, wetlands and mature hardwood forests. It is home to Schumacher’s Slough, sugar maples and tall grass prairie.
