WHITE SPRINGS — The Pumpkin Fest at Big Shoals State Park had a little bit of everything.

Along with the several activities, like pumpkin painting, a hay ride, cornhole for the kids, and gathering coins to see the “witch’s lair,” there were also costumes at the festival last weekend at the park.

Several of the Park Rangers were present as well as several volunteers to ensure that the children had fun, while also staying safe.

The witch’s lair was the most fun for the children, which showed the more coins you had, the more candy you received. Several enjoyed the boneyard that was located outside the witch’s lair, which included Chucky and his bride.

This scary toddler duo of brother and sister were the favorites in the park, hands down, and everyone loved their scary cute costumes.

Their mother, Bri Keller, is an artist who loves to paint, and for the past two Halloweens, she paints her kids’ costumes to make them more lifelike.

From the pumpkin bowling, face painting, costume parade, pumpkin painting, to the treasure chest and hayride that took guests on a tour though the woods at roughly 5 p.m., everyone who attended had everything good to say about the event and that they looked forward to next year.
