Are you looking for an evening out without the kids? Then gather your friends and register early to reserve your spot for the Halloween Road Rally. Enjoy an evening of fun and adventure as you travel throughout Oxford solving puzzles and clues, all leading to our final destination. The evening will end with prizes and a buffet style dinner.

How does a hayride, pumpkin patch and trick or treating sound? Bring your family and join the parks & recreation staff on a safe fun-filled autumn day.  Participants and their families will enjoy hayrides, a pumpkin from the Great Pumpkin Patch and candy & trinkets from trick or treat trail. Don't forget to wear your Halloween costumes and comfortable walking shoes. Tickets must be purchased in advanced. Event is for children 12 & under on Saturday, October 28.
