BEAVERCREEK — Greene County Parks & Trails will offer an owling’ good time during Owl-O-Ween 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22 at Karohl Park, 2940 Hohl Drive.

Owl-O-Ween will include a hay ride, live owl, camp fire, pumpkin carving, slingshot pumpkin fly, scarecrow building, straw maze, treats, as well as a costume contest at 7 p.m. Naturalists will also lead an owl-calling contest.

Participants in the scarecrow building contest can bring their own creative supplies or use what is available on-site at the event. A traditional costume contest will also be held at 7 p.m. for those event participants who arrive in costume. First, second and third place honors will be awarded.

The handcrafted pumpkin slingshot is a favorite as participants ‘fire’ their pumpkins into the field. Cost for the event is $7 per person, Greene County resident; $10 per non-resident. Pre-registration is requested for all of the above events.

For more information or to register call Greene County Parks & Trails at 937-562-6440 or email info@gcparkstrails.com.
