An evening of Halloween activities for the entire family will be held from 4-8 p.m. at Lake Bistineau State Park Saturday. Guests will be able to explore one of the oldest parks in Louisiana during a hayride around the park, watch a movie in the Nature Center and tell spooky stories by a campfire.
The hayride begins at 4 p.m., in the park's boat launch area and will go through the campground for
Trick-or-Treating. Children are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costumes. The hayride will then proceed to visit some of the more "spooky" locations in the park.
After the hayride, guests can watch ParaNorman on the Nature Center's big screen projector.
Popcorn and snacks will be served during the movie. The evening will wrap up with a campfire and scary stories told by the park's interpretive ranger. Guests are welcome to share their own stories while roasting hot dogs and making s'mores over the fire.
Lake Bistineau State Park is located 40 minutes east of Shreveport, south of I-20. Overnight visitors can enjoy cabins, campsite or a choice of two group camps. Entrance fees are $2/person, free for senior 62+ and children 3 and under.
