Bring the whole family out to McCloud Nature Park and celebrate the brilliant colors of autumn with us on Saturday , Oct . 22 from 10 a . m . to 3 p . m .!

Autumn is a beautiful time of year , and McCloud Nature Park bursts into colorful splendor in October and November every year . Because of the multitude of tree species found within the park , the wide variety of autumn colors lead McCloud Nature Park to be voted by the public through Visit Indiana as one of the Top 10 Places for Fall Foliage in the state every year !

As such , we celebrate the fabulous fall foliage every October with our fun , FREE , family-friendly Fall Colors Festival . We have 232 acres of natural beauty to explore while you ’ re here , including 6½ miles of trails , the McCloud Nature Center , and our fishthemed 2022 McCloud Prairie Maze ( see page 5 ).
We have hands-on activities for everyone to enjoy at the Fall Colors Festival , such as tree-climbing , archery , throwing an atlatl ( an ancient hunting weapon ), hayrides , yard games , fishing game “ Backyard Bass ,” fish prints and more !
Follow us on Facebook or on our website for updates and more specific information about the event as we approach mid-October .
We look forward to seeing you at the 2022 Fall Colors Festival !
