On Saturday, October 18th, the annual Fall Fun Event will take place at Wallace State Park which is located near Cameron, MO. According to Park Superintendent Lana Woody this year there will be a “Find the Pumpkin” trail hiking adventure.

Lana Woody says, “We are going to choose two of the trails to put the pumpkins on, but we won’t tell visitors until that morning so they don’t get a head start.” Everyone who attends will have an equal chance. The superintendent says they will be giving away 4 walking sticks along with small prizes like toys.

Mid-afternoon around 2:00 p.m. visitors can see some live owls that are presented by Operation Wildlife. Park officials invite the public to bring their cameras to take some up close photos.

Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m. there is going to be a special presentation called Sights and Sounds of the Night. Following that, there will be a night hike which will last about 20-30 minutes. Those who are interested in participating should remember to bring a flash light. Woody stresses, “The night hike is nothing too challenging.”

Wallace State Park is located 7 miles south of Cameron, MO on Highway 121. From Interstate 35, take exit 48, go south on Highway 69 for ½ mile, then take Highway 121 for one mile to the park entrance.
