Halloween in Northwest Arkansas

Fall in Northwest Arkansas is absolutely beautiful! The colors, the cool air...football of course! But the epitome of the fall season in our corner of the state truly has to be Halloween.

Every year Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park offers Haunted Battlefield Tours through the park. Last night, my parents and I put on our warm jackets and tennis shoes and made the short drive to Prairie Grove. We were in Group 4 - the "Jayhawker" Group. We saw several hundred people come through while we were there. Kids and adults alike gathered around a bonfire, playing, talking, and listening to reenactors tell stories about the battlefield and sing songs.

After some free kettle corn and apple cider, we lined up and began our trek into the dark woods. Along the way, we got some ghost stories about the Battle of Prairie Grove and some scary surprises. We hiked along an eerily lit trail for 20 minutes. The night was complete with a hayride back up the hill.

We had SO MUCH FUN!! I love being scared, and I love history. A haunted battlefield tour is the perfect combination of my favorite things! If you're looking for something to do for for Halloween, check out some haunted houses - remember the Prairie Grove Haunted Battlefield Tours for next year!

    just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.

  15. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a
    quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself
    and clear your head before writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!
