The following are just a few of the many reasons you’re going to want to be sure to spend your 2023 Halloween in Park City.
Participate in the Scarecrow Festival
If you’re looking to pair your Halloween scares in Park City with some creative fun too, you’ll find the best of both waiting for you to enjoy at McPolin Barn. Located at 3000 Utah 224 in Park City, McPolin Barn will once again be hosting their annual Scarecrow Festival in 2023. This event invites guests to come and create their very own scarecrows that will then be integrated into the Scarecrow Festival setup! Everything you need to create your scarecrow will be right on-site including stuffing and support beams for the final product. Of course, guests are encouraged to bring the fun extras that truly bring a scarecrow to life including clothing, shoes, props, and accessories. When your scarecrow is complete, you can pick a place to set it up along the designated trail where it will join all of the others in what makes a truly thrilling Halloween display each year. Plan on spending at least two hours at this event for which tickets can be purchased at the door and in advance. While the scarecrow creating event will be held September 30th from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm, the scarecrows that are crafted will be on display at McPolin Bar through October 28th. Swing by to be a part of the fun or just enjoy the spooky view when the scarecrows are complete. Either way, it’s bound to be a Halloween experience you won’t soon forget.
