Guests were treated to complimentary activities including hayrides, as shown at right, pumpkin picking in a pumpkin patch, as shown at left; and face- and pumpkin-painting. The Field Station provided hands-on activities and exhibits. UA mascot Zippy made an appearance and joined a haywagon full of riders to tour the park. The Akron Zoo presented a “backyard wildlife” program, and Cascade Auto Group provided rides in four-wheel-drive vehicles from the main parking lot to the event site.
The Bath Park Board offered a raffle to support an effort by the group to install a dock at Bath Pond, which will provide access for fishing and education. Cascade Auto Group provided the grand prize of a tour of Subaru of Indiana’s “green” manufacturing plant, use of a Subaru for the round trip to the factory and lodging accommodations.
Area youth groups volunteered at the haywagon loading site, face-painting booth and pumpkin-painting tables. Several youths also played guitar to entertain.
Peninsula Art Academy once again provided the pumpkin-painting supplies, and face-painting supplies were donated by ServiceMaster by Corbett, according to event officials.
