When temperatures start to cool and leaves begin to turn more than 30 Michigan state parks play host to fall harvest festivals. Hay rides, pumpkin carving, trick-or-treating, costume contests, haunted trails, nature programs and horse-drawn carriage rides are just some of the family-friendly activities happening each September and October.
Lapeer County's Metamora-Hadley Recreation Area will host Fall Harvest Festival Weekend (campers only) on October 5-7 and October 12-14. For more information call 810-797-4439. Metamora-Hadley Recreation Area is located at 3871 Herd Road in Metamora.
