October 8: Trick or Treat Hike at Oak Grove Park

Join the Sioux County Conservation Board for an evening of Halloween Celebration at Oak Grove Park! Families with children ages 12 and under are invited to trick or treat in costume at Oak Grove Park. You will start at the river and walk a luminary lit trail to Deer Run Campground, trick or treat at the campsites, and then make your way back down to the river for a bonfire. Once again we will be including Turkey Ridge Campground in the festivities. This does not include a trail and is stroller friendly. Parking will also be located near this campground. No pre-registration needed. Listen to KSOU 93.9 FM for weather cancellations. Trick or treating is from 5:30-8:00pm. Questions please call 712/552-1047 8am-4:30pm.
