Fall Colors Run & Festival

Runners, walkers and families all have a great reason to visit McCloud Nature Park on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017, when the Parks Foundation of Hendricks County and Hendricks County Parks & Recreation host their annual Fall Colors Run, immediately followed by the Fall Colors Festival.

Getting the day off to a running start is the Fall Colors Run, which offers 10K, 5K and one-mile courses through McCloud Nature Park’s trails and along Big Walnut Creek in the peak of fall foliage season. 

Details and registration information are forthcoming at www.pfohc.org.


Fall Colors Festival

Immediately following the Fall Colors Run is the Fall Colors Festival, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Come out to McCloud Nature Park and celebrate the beautiful autumn foliage with us! Try your hand at archery, climb a tree, throw an atlatl (an ancient hunting weapon), decorate a pumpkin, operate a cider press, take a hayride (for a nominal fee), and much more!

Festival participants can also walk any of the 6.5 miles of trails at McCloud Nature Park, explore Big Walnut Creek, and venture into the heron-themed prairie maze while they’re there.

Families are not required to participate in the Fall Colors Run to enjoy the Fall Colors Festival.

The Fall Colors Festival is FREE to attend, appropriate for all ages, and no advance registration is required.
