Fall Frolic

The annual Fall Frolic is slated for Saturday, September 16th at Hickory Park, with a rain date of September 17th. This grand event, our biggest of the year, occupies the entire park. Wristbands will be available for purchase, allowing attendees to partake in the various rides. Enjoy an array of attractions including both adorable and fascinating animals, pony rides, local businesses, food trucks, crafts, and live music.

To ensure the continued success of this long-standing event, we're in need of volunteers. Tasks primarily involve overseeing crowd flow at attractions to avoid overcrowding. If you're interested in volunteering for a few hours or the entire day, please email
