Trick-or-treating, fall activities found at state parks
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Halloween and favorite fall activities are already taking place at state parks around Nebraska.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says several Halloween-themed events in October are being held at state park areas to bring families outdoors.
Besides trick-or-treating, parks also offer pumpkin carving, campsite decorating, hayrack rides, hikes, crafts, pumpkin rolls and other activities.
Several parks — including those in Gering, Ponca and Shubert — are starting this weekend, with candy, decorating and spooky attractions being offered Saturday.
More information on the events can be found online at www.outdoornebraska.gov/parkevents . A park entry permit is required of each vehicle entering a state park area.
