Put on your costume and play at Rocky Reach Park Oct. 28

image fall harvestHop on a hayride at the Fall Harvest Roundup 1-4 p.m. on Oct. 28 at Rocky Reach Park! The Discovery Center’s annual end-of-the-season bash is all fun and all free.

Costumes are encouraged. Kids can toss a lasso, knock over boots with beanbags, compete in relays, and find a fish in a haystack, all while learning about clean, renewable hydropower. L-Bow the Clown will be on stage, too!

Decked out in Halloween décor, the Discovery Center will host indoor scavenger hunts that span three floors of hands-on fun. Steer a steamship, crank a generator and hang out in a tule house. Don’t forget to check out the full-length viewing windows, where lamprey and various fish species may be lurking in the fish ladder.

Feeling hungry? Mama D’s Café will offer affordable lunch fare – including hot dogs, chili, and nachos – in the upper shelter.

Rocky Reach Discovery Center and park will be closed until 1 p.m. Saturday, so staff can prepare for all the fun. The gates will open at 1 p.m. to welcome guests for the Fall Harvest Round-up.

After the event, the Discovery Center will be open year-round, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday.
