All Hallows Eve Celebration -- CANCELLED for 2014
We regret we have had to cancel the All Hallows Eve Celebration. Thank you to all our past visitors and the 30 + Volunteers who worked tirelessly carving 350 pumpkins days before the event, lighting all those candles when the wind blew them out several times, drove the hayrides, reenacted historical persona in all the venues, told stories at the bonfire and played wonderful music. The driving distance combined with a plethora of Corn Mazes and Haunted Houses prompted us to make the decision to cancel. Thank you one and all for your past support.
