The Halloween Camp-Out is back at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground for its annual fright with two great weekends in 2013, October 18-20 and October 25-27!
On Friday, October 18 and 25, there will be a movie night starting at 8:00 pm, playing a children’s Halloween movie first, followed by an adult Halloween movie.
On Saturday, October 19 and 26, R&J Photography will have a photo booth set up next to the pool. Campers may get a “KHP Halloween Camp Out 2013” 4x6 photo of their little one in costume, their decorated golf cart with everyone on board or anything else they might choose. There will also be kid's crafts, carnival games and a haunted house!
There will be a pumpkin carving/decorating contest (pumpkins must be at the front of site by 4pm for judging) as well as costume contests for various categories, including age groups for 0-3, 4-7, 8-11, 12-17, 18+ women, 18+ men, and categories for couples, groups, and pets! There will also be prizes awarded to those with the best decorated campsite, chalk art, and golf cart.
Also on Saturday evening, trick-or-treating around the camp sites will be from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. After trick-or-treating, campers may enjoy entertainment around the Halloween bonfire when the southern rock band, JoJo Gunn, will perform at 7:00 pm. After the band performs, catch a lift to the haunted trail on the hayride, which will take riders out, but who knows if they will find their way back? After a long day of festivities, the last event of the evening will be the Golf Cart Parade at 10:00 pm.
The following morning, close out the perfect Halloween weekend by joining fellow campers and new friends at 9:00 am for doughnuts at the pavilion on Sunday.
This event is sponsored in part by Northside RVs, Halloween Express and the KHP Foundation. Campers will have two different weekends to enjoy the festivities. The campground has full-service or primitive camping available, so call now to book your Halloween camp-out and let’s send the camping season out with a bang!
