Another fun thing to do in October is the Jack O Lantern Trail Walk at the Fountain Creek Nature Center. Located just South of Colorado Springs is the City of Fountain. The Fountain Creek Nature Center includes a museum and acres of winding trails which lead through densly treed preserved land that parallels the creek. Here is an exerpt from their web site:
See some Creepy Critters and take a walk on the Jack-O-Lantern Trail at the Fountain Creek Nature Center. Trails will be lighted with pumpkins from the Pumpkin carving party held earlier in the day. Come and see the creepy and creative designs on the trail walk. There will also be a Creepy Critters slide show, meet a live Tarantula and receive a candy treat. Wear your favorite costume to the event. To create a pumpkin for the trail come to the Pumpkin Carving party that will be held on October 26 from 9 am to Noon. For more information call (719) 520-6745.
