Falling into Fun

September & October = Fall Events & Family Fun!

Thoughts of fall bring to mind bright orange pumpkins, adventuring through corn mazes, pumpkin painting, festivals, hay rides, games, and so much more.

There is no shortage of events, activities, and family fun from now until the end of October, create memories that will last a lifetime!


If you haven’t already, it’s time to start falling in love with fall! There are plenty of family-friendly activities and events happening every weekend. Special events like Happy Halloween Weekends at Holiday World include many of the rides you love plus plenty of seasonal activities, including corn mazes, hay rides, and more.

Escape to Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort for a weekend of family fun during Halloween Weekends. Don’t forget your costume! Taste delectable fall flavors at Santa’s Candy Castle. Our mouths are watering just thinking about crunchy popcorn with caramel apple flavoring, salt water taffy that tastes like candy corn, and pumpkin-flavored cocoa. Walk one (or all six!) of the beautiful trails at Lincoln State Park. Can you imagine the breathtaking view from atop the fire tower during this time of year?
