Ashley’s Mom Monday: Child-friendly Halloween festival at Tannehill State Park

MCCALLA, Ala. (WIAT) — Are you looking for a Halloween event that is child-friendly and not scary? You may want to head over to Tannehill State Park this Saturday.

In this week’s Ashley’s Mom Monday, I take you through the campgrounds as campers transform the park into an enchanted forest.

If you’ve never been to Tannehill, it is just beautiful, and if you have never been to their Halloween festival, you have to go. I met some of the sweetest and most energetic campers who can’t wait to give out candy to your little ghosts and goblins this weekend.

Some have been here since the second week of August to get that treasured place that works best with their plans and their decor.

“We’ve been here since July to reserve a spot for Halloween,” Shirley Parker, a camper from Hoover, said, “That’s how people are, they have their special spots and this is mine. It’s such a fun, fun day for families. You anticipate six to seven thousand people to come by your campsite.”

The festival begins at 11 a.m. with food, games and train rides with the more traditional trick or treating beginning at 5 p.m. with more than 300 campers.
