CANTON, S.D. -( Newton Hills State Park near Canton will host the 18th annual FestFall on Oct. 7, from 1-5 p.m CDT. The event features arts and crafts, kid’s activities and musical entertainment.

Kids of all ages can participate in “make and take” crafts, a mining sluice and more. An arts and crafts show will host over 30 craft vendors displaying unique crafts, home décor and other gift ideas. Food vendors will be on site throughout the afternoon.

As in years past, the pumpkin will take center stage with pumpkin catapulting, pumpkin carving demonstrations and decorated pumpkin contests. Visitors are encouraged to bring in their own decorated or carved pumpkins for judging.

Following the afternoon FestiFall celebration, the Candlelight Walk will lead visitors along 2.2 miles of candle-lit trail through the deep woods of Newton Hills. The trail will be solely lit by candles and carved pumpkins.

Walkers will encounter many surprises along the trail, including musicians, colorful characters from the past, a magician and telescopes to view the evening sky. Walkers may begin the self-led adventure anytime between 7:15 and 8:30 p.m.

Throughout the weekend, campers are encouraged to decorate their campsites with a fall theme. Hay wagon rides will be available Saturday afternoon to take visitors through the campground to view and judge the decorated campsites.

There is no cost to participate in any of the events; however a park entrance license is required. For additional information, please contact Newton Hills at 605.987.2263, email, visit their website or find Newton Hills State Park on Facebook.
