Fall Fun Fest At Deep Creek
Lake State Park, Oct. 4
DEEP CREEK LAKE, MD (September
29, 2003) — Deep Creek Lake State Park staff and park volunteers will
host the Fall Fun Fest at Deep Creek Lake State Park in Garrett County
on Saturday, Oct. 4, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
At 11 a.m., the Fall Fun Fest will begin with a scarecrow-making
event. Participants and their families should bring outfits, old
clothes, costumes, or props for creating scarecrows. Participants must
also provide the necessary brains, hearts, imagination, and ingenuity.
The park will supply thread and cord, straw for stuffing the creatures,
and markers to draw scarecrow faces. Participants should expect to
escort their new scarecrow friends home with them. At 12:30 p.m. on the
deck of the Discovery Center, a contest will be held to judge the merits
of the assembled scarecrows.
At 1 p.m., a naturalist will lead a hike into the fall woods. Hikers
should wear comfortable walking shoes and bring along light jackets and
something to drink. Hiking time will run approximately one hour.
Fall hours at the Discovery Center are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
