Fun things to do for MEA

MEA is next week, Thursday October 18th and Friday October 19th. That means the kids have no school. So, what to do with them? Here are a few fun things to do!

Visit the Corn Maze in Shafer MN. Every year they have a different theme and it is fun for kids of all ages. You can also pick pumpkins, go on a hayride and milk a ‘cow’..!  Check out their website:

Pumpkin Express Train: October 19, 20, & 21, 2012

On Saturday and Sunday, begin your fun filled event by riding on a 1950s classic bus that will pick you up from Osceola High School parking lot in Osceola, Wisconsin at 1114 Oak Ridge Dr. The bus will bring you to the Osceola Depot where you will board the train for a ride to the pumpkin patch and other fun filled fall activities. On Friday, come right to the depot for parking. You will be traveling through rural Wisconsin passing communities, farms and homes. When the train arrives at the festival grounds in Dresser, Wisconsin, passengers exit to enjoy pump car rides, games, wagon rides, face painting. Don’t forget to check out the haunted depot! Food (such as hamburgers, hot dogs, etc) will be available on the festival grounds for sale. This is always a sell out so make your reservations early. Wear a costume and see if you’re as scary as the ghouls in the haunted depot!

Friday, October 19th the pumpkin train departs at 10:30 AM & 11:30 AM Saturday, October 20th and Sunday, October 21st the pumpkin train departs at 9:30 AM, 10:30AM, 11:30 AM, 1:00PM and 2:00 PM. You do not have to take your same train back to the station in Osceola; last train on Friday will be 3 hours after the last departure; on Saturday and Sunday, last train back will be around 4:30pm.
