This is the 27th year and the theme is “Floodplain Friends.” Plants and animals that live in the Cedar River Floodplain will tell visitors all about themselves along a pumpkin lit trail at Saulsbury Bridge Recreation Area. Tickets should be purchased ahead of time as time slots fill up quickly. Hikes are Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17. First hike starts at 6:30pm on both nights with new hikes starting every 10 minutes until 8:00pm. $5.00 per person. Children under 5 are free.
