Bring family and friends to our new fall community initiative - Scary Saturdays. Park in the field and follow the lanterns to the pumpkin patch, where you can buy a pumpkin meant just for YOU. Wind your way through a corn maze. Enjoy fun, funny, and maybe even a few scary scarecrows. Bring your camera. There will be plenty of dazzling photo opportunities along the way. We promise you’ll be delighted by all things spooky and surprising! 


Catch a wagon ride with Dylan Wilson and the last working draft-horse team in Yancey County — Chubby and Claude. Roll past creeks and hollows while listening to “scary” stories about historical mountain characters. Maybe you'll even see the Shoal Creek ghost.
