It’s Holey Stumpkin With The Black Hawk State Historic Site
It's that time of the year when all of our favorite spots start hosting Halloween events!
Get ready for "Holey Stumpkin!" with the Black Hawk State Historic Site on October 15th. It's a great evening of fun running from 5 pm to 7 pm.
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!)
