2018 Haunted River

Friday, October 26th, 2018 from 4:30pm to 9:30pm (CT)


Enjoy live music, dancing, an adult costume contest (18+), haunted river parade, and trick or treating to round out a slightly-spooky night of fun. This is a very popular event; come early and stay late. The vibe is spooky but not too much for scaredy-cats. Bwaahaahaa. 

We have two fun events, one for adults and one for the whole family.
