MILFORD STATE PARK SET FOR SPOOKY CELEBRATION OCT. 14TH

Halloween critters, hayrack ride, and "monster" myth-busters play host Oct. 14

"Monster Myths by Moonlight" is the theme of an Oct. 14 event at Milford State Park . The event will run from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and include a hayrack ride and exploration of the nature trails by moonlight.

Biologists will man the nature trail, where participants stop at stations and meet "Halloween monsters" and learn the truth about them. Stations include a witch with a vulture, spiders, bats, a snake charmer with a snake, a wizard with owls, a troll on the bridge, and Little Red Riding Hood, who will talk about predators. Mother Nature will serve cookies and cider. Participants are invited to wear Halloween costumes.

Monster Myths is free, but an annual park entrance permit or $6 daily vehicle permit is required to enter the park. For more information, phone 785-238-3014.
