CAMP McFADDEN — Paint a pumpkin, enter the children’s costume contest (ages 12 and younger), cook a s’more over a campfire … these are some of the events at the Camp McFadden FallFest Oct. 31-Nov. 1 at Camp McFadden on the west shore of Kaw Lake.

Children are encouraged to wear their costumes to enter a special children’s costume contest with prizes for those 12 and younger.

“Members of the Po-Hi Key Club are using their imaginations to create our haunted cabin for children,” said Kathy Tippin, chairman of the Camp McFadden FallFest. “We’re excited to have their ideas and help with this project.”

The festival will feature kids’ games including penny in the hay stack, an opportunity to take pictures looking like a scarecrow and various other games.

Among other activities for the day are a hay rack ride, scarecrow making, fish painting and pumpkin decorating. And there are the usual camp attractions including the Canoe Pond and Nature Walk.

The festival runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1 at Camp McFadden. Admission is $3 for those over six. Under 6 are free. Come out and have a great day of family fun!
