National Ranching Heritage Center to Present Heritage Halloween at the Ranch

A new fall event at the National Ranching Heritage Center will reflect on an old-fashioned Harvest Festival, with a couple of fun elements added in.

Visitors of all ages can take part free of charge. Trick-or-Treaters can fill their bags with old-fashioned treats as they visit several of the historic structures at the NRHC. They can also take part in a cake walk in the McLaughlin Arbor and make fall crafts in the Pitchfork Pavilion.

"We will be offering hayrides, too," said event coordinator and Manager of Education Christy Lemons. "The community has been great about getting involved. The Science Spectrum is bringing spiders and snakes for the kids to look at, the Maize is giving us corn and shocks to decorate with, and the Ranch Host volunteers will demonstrate traditional activities such as ... peeling and drying apples, pulling taffy and making cornhusk dolls." She added that the Buddy Holly Center will set up a traditional Mexican altar to promote their Dia de los Muertos event in November.

Candy apples will be sold on the patio, and Cogdells General Store will be open with Halloween decorations and gifts and fall merchandise.
