For one magical night a year, Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park is transformed into the Enchanted Forest, where there is something to delight even the smallest Halloween revelers. Hop on a hayride, decorate a pumpkin, and stroll around Rose's Pond for activities including a puppet show, music, fire show and more. 

Enchanted Forest is primarily an entertainment event — not a trick-or-treating event. However, there will be a limited supply of candy at sponsor booths, thanks to their generosity.

Costumes are optional.
