A Weekend Full of Halloween Fun

This weekend there are ample opportunities for Halloween fun.  Friday night the Vincennes Central Business District is hosting the children’s pumpkin hunt and costume parade in downtown Vincennes. From 4:00pm – 6:00pm there will be trick-or-treating with the downtown merchants. At 6:00pm the costume parade begins from Main Street to Patrick Henry Square.  Enjoy games, hayrides, pictures with the Great Pumpkin and the lighting of the pumpkin tower, and a fresh-air flick.

Meet characters from Vincennes history and listen to their chilling tales of life and death on the early Indiana frontier at Fort Knox II.  There will be a family friendly “No Scare” program from 5:00pm – 7:00pm including wagon rides, concessions, games, storytelling, face painting and pumpkin painting. The “Full Scare” portion will be held from 7:00pm – 9:00pm including tours of the Fort by lantern light (by historical characters with scary surprises), concessions, games and pumpkin painting. *The last tours will start at 9:30pm. Admission $8.00/person ages 13 & up and $5.00/person ages 12 & under. (Admission is good for the entire night.)

Saturday morning you can shop at the Farmers Market for all of your Fall décor and Halloween pumpkins from 8am-1pm and then head over to the Harvest Moon Festival at Gregg Park.  The Harvest Moon events for the day include a craft/flea market, hayrides, food booths, pumpkin patch & carving, hot dog & marshmallow roasting, trunk or treating, Miss Harvest Moon pageant, spooky storytelling, kids & pets costume contests & pictures and FREE music at the band shelter.
