Halloween is just around the corner and they certainly know how to rise to the occasion at Wilson's Orchard! All through October the focus is on family fun at this part nature park, part orchard right here in Iowa City. The highlights of the month are the Pumpkin Festival and Trick-Or-Treat Weekend as we head towards the spookiest night of the year.

Trick or Treat Weekend Wilson's Orchard

The kids will love the idea of wearing their costume before Halloween and they'll get a prize for doing it this weekend at Wilson's Orchard. A great opportunity to pick apples and pumpkins before Halloween. Take a trailer ride out or enjoy the fall air with a nice long walk. And when you need fortification there will be lots of bakery treats to choose from and hot mulled cider!
