The 13th Annual History Hayride, a fundraising event for the Friends of Edgar Evins State Park, will be held on Saturday, October 13 at the park.

Registration is now open for the Hayride. The cost is $15.00 per person. Seating is limited. This event sells out very quickly so be sure to get your reservations made early to ensure your seats! A Visa or Master Card will be accepted.

Ride hay wagons back into the “olden days”, with approximately 9 stops along the route where costumed characters will reveal the history of the park and area. A guide on each wagon will provide additional narratives between stops. This year’s hayride offers history, mystery, and theater. This is not a Halloween themed event and is not suitable for small children or those who have difficulty sitting still for 2 1/2 hours.

Ten wagons will leave at approximately 30-minute intervals from the park office and return approximately 2 1/2 hours later. Reservations will be for specific report times from 1:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The Friends of Edgar Evins State Park will provide complimentary hot beverages and sell individual sized servings of home baked cookies and brownies in the park office. As in past there will also be complimentary marshmallows to roast over the campfire in front of the office.

Friends of Edgar Evins State Park is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization with the purpose of helping the park. The History Hayride is a fundraiser by the Friends in cooperation with park staff. More information about the group and how to join may be found on the website at www.foeesp.com or the Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/friendsofeesp.
