About Black Hawk State Historic Site

Black Hawk State Historic Site is a 208 acre park managed by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources that showcases the fascinating cultural history and diverse natural resources of the Quad Cities. Explore hiking trails along the Rock River and through the nature preserve. Discover the history of Black Hawk and the Sauk and Meskwaki people by visiting the John Hauberg Museum. Reserve the beautiful Watch Tower Lodge (built by the Civilian Conservation Corps) for your next big event.

About Holey Stumpkin

You can join them at the park's north end at the fire circle for some fall fun! S’mores and hotdogs for roasting are provided! There will also be an illuminated hike along the tree line and learn about the “Unhuggable” animals of the forest from actors playing the critters themselves.

There is also a pumpkin carving contest that runs from 5 pm-6 pm.

(Pumpkins are provided but contestants should bring their own tools to carve. The winner will take a stumpkin home to burn at home!)

I Turned The Quad Cities Into AI Art

To get the AI pictures all I had to do was type in the name of the city, and the state, the algorithm did the rest.

All these photos are computer generated, and at first glance, it looks pretty good... some more than others, but the longer you look the more you notice how weird each one is.

These are all 5 cities in the QC. To start I typed in "Quad Cities" to see the results

Quad City Pumpkin Patches

It's pumpkin pickin' time in the Quad Cities. Pumpkins make great fall decorations and they are obviously fun to carve. If buying a pumpkin at a store doesn't cut it and you want the full experience of a pumpkin patch, we have the full list of pumpkin patches throughout the Quad Cities. If we are missing any local pumpkin patches, email us here.
