The time of year for Scarecrows at Spring Mill State Park
Start Date: 10/13/2018 All Day
End Date: 10/14/2018
Event Description:

Oct. 13-14, Spring Mill State Park near Mitchell, IN will host the annual “Scarecrow Weekend” in the Pioneer Village”.

Saturday will be full of fun and games as visitors build Scarecrows, Carve Pumpkins and make hands-on crafts. The Village closes Saturday at 4 PM as we prepare for the Haunted Village. 

A Costume and Candy Parade will form at the Campground Amphitheater at 3:30 PM for anyone interested. Then from 7:30-9:30 PM, visit the “Haunted Village” where the staff and volunteers will frighten the brave and amuse. The area is perfect for this event as darkness falls the village takes on spooky shadows and eerie sounds. Though it is a family oriented event we do not recommend children younger than 8 attend and strollers are prohibited.

Armbands for the event are $5 and will be sold the day of the event only from 9 am to 4 pm at the pool gatehouse. No bands will be sold after 4 pm! You must have your armband to enter the haunted village.

On Sunday the fun continues in the pioneer village with the story of a notorious outlaw and more hands on crafts.

Park admission during the event is $7 per vehicle for in-state residents and $9 per vehicle for out-of-state residents.
