Many activities set for Halloween in the Hollow

LEWELLEN, Neb. – Ash Hollow State Historical Park invites the public to celebrate with the “ghosts of the Oregon Trail” during Halloween in the Hollow on Saturday, Oct. 27. The annual event, a cooperative effort between the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and the Friends of Ash Hollow, will be noon to 7 p.m. at the park.

Halloween at the Hollow features children’s games, concessions, archery, crafts, costume contests and more from noon to 4 p.m. At 4 o’clock attention will turn to the trunk-or-treat, in which visitors are invited to decorate their vehicles and provide candy for trick-or-treaters. The final event of the day is the Haunted Trail Walk, which starts after dark.

A Nebraska Park Entry Permit is required for vehicles entering the park, which is rich with history about the Oregon Trail. The park’s visitors center will be open from noon to 5 p.m. with a museum admission fee of $2 per adult and $1 per child.

For more information, contact Alison Bleich, park superintendent, at 308-778-5651 or alison.bleich@nebraska.gov.
