Halloween family fun at Fort Flagler State Park
Oct. 12, 2011 –
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission invites the public to attend the third annual Halloween carnival at Fort Flagler State Park on the northern tip of Marrowstone Island.
The carnival runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 29 and 30 at Fort Flagler State Park, 10541 Flagler Road, Nordland. Family-friendly activities include carnival games, a trick-or-treat street, zombie hayrides and a photobooth for all ages. The haunted house, the Powerhouse of Peril, returns for another year, located in the park’s historic powerhouse. Food is available for purchase. The Discover Pass is encouraged, but not required to attend this event.
Admission is $5 per person or $15 for a group of four. All proceeds support the Halloween carnival and other community events at Fort Flagler State Park. The event is presented by the Friends of Fort Flagler State Park.
Fort Flagler State Park is a 784-acre marine camping park surrounded on three sides by 19,100 feet of saltwater shoreline. The park rests on a high bluff overlooking Puget Sound, with views of the Olympic and Cascade mountains. Many historic buildings remain at this 19th-century-established military fort.
The Commission manages a diverse system of more than 100 state parks and recreation programs, including long-distance trails, boating safety and winter recreation. The 98-year-old park system will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2013.
