Kick off fall at Pumpkins in the Pines

Oct 8, 2020 | Uncategorized

The (black) cat is out of the (trick-or-treat) bag! SkyPark at Santa’s Village is ready to welcome back those crisp, cool days, the changing colors of fall and the return of Pumpkins in the Pines.

Every Saturday and Sunday- starting on October 10-11 and continuing on Oct. 17-18, Oct. 24-25 and Oct. 30-Nov. 1 – head to Skyforest for the ultimate fall celebration at SkyPark.

In keeping with social distancing guidelines, SkyPark is limiting the number of guests to this year’s festivities. Access to Pumpkins in the Pines is included with each guest’s admission to SkyPark; visit the website – – to make your reservation.
What is on tap for the guests?

Entertainment: Come hear the tale of the “Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” told through a special puppet show every weekend and be wowed by Wacko the Magician. The Northwoods characters have invited some special friends – like Sally Scarecrow, Jeff O Lantern and, of course, Arrow – to join in on the fun.

Pumpkin Patch and Pumpkin Painting: The Pavilion will be transformed into SkyPark’s famous pumpkin patch where guests can find the perfect one! And then, at the pumpkin painting station, create a work of art for to display back at home.

Contactless Trick-or-Treating: Do you like candy but hate germs? Guess what – SkyPark does, too! This year at Pumpkins in the Pines, enjoy contactless trick-or-treating so you can still safely participate in the festivities while satisfying your sweet tooth.

Fantom Forest Haunted Hike: Once the sun goes down, the hiking trails at SkyPark house a mysterious secret. As legend has it, something spooky emerges every Saturday night only in October. Make your Saturdays a little scarier this October 10, 17, 24 and 31 from 5-7 p.m. The first hour is family-friendly and meant for small children. The second hour may be a bit more frightening.

Halloween Skate Night Saturdays: It will be a Monster Mash Skate Party on Oct. 24 followed by Spooky Skate Night on Halloween itself, Oct. 31. What creative costumes will all you guys and ghouls come up with?

Favorite Fall Flavors: Is it really fall without pumpkins and spice? Follow your nose to The Gingerbread House Bakery & Sweet Shoppe for some festive gingerbread men skeletons, mummies and caramel apples. And be sure to stop by Kringle’s Coffee and Gifts for a Salted Caramel Mocha, Spice Cake Latte, Pumpkin Pie Frappe and the essential Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Adults can wet their whistle at The Pedal Pub with the Fall Sangria, PumpkinTini and rotating selection of Oktoberfest beers on draft.  Prefer something less hoppy and more coffee? Why not warm up with a French roast with Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Pumpkin Spice Liquor and cinnamon?
