Scary good fun at Milford State Park Oct. 10

Bats, spiders, and snakes, oh my! Milford State Park and Milford Nature Center staff, along with members of the Milford Friends Group, invite your family to have a scary good time at the 24th Annual “Monster Myths by Moonlight” event, Saturday, Oct. 10. Beginning at 5:30 p.m., this free event will shed light on some of the holiday’s misunderstood “monsters,” such as the notoriously ill-reputed bat and equally slandered spiders and snakes. Participants are encouraged to come in costume.

Those brave enough to make the trek will explore Milford State Park’s “Waterfall Trail,” stopping at special booths along the way, many featuring live animals. At the end of the trail, explorers can shake off their heebie-jeebies with some cookies and cider.

Hayrack rides will transport participants to and from the trail, starting at the Milford Lake Marina parking lot in Milford State Park.

A daily vehicle park permit, $5, will be required for entrance.

For more information, contact Milford Nature Center staff at (785) 238-5323, or Milford State Park staff at (785) 238-3014.

Additional sponsors for this event include the Junction City Police Department and Geary County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
