From local fun right here in Henderson to places within a couple of hours, we have provided a list of things to do over Fall Break. Halloween-related or not, you’re sure to enjoy Fall Break 2018!
Fall Break Friday @ Audubon State Park
Got a break from school? Need something to do? All ages come and enjoy the wonderful fall weather at John James Audubon State Park! Meet our naturalist staff at the Cardinal Shelter for some outdoor fun. We’ll be making an autumn-themed craft. Then be ready to roast s’mores over the fire! Rain or shine.
Big Splash Adventure – French Lick, IN
While some may have headed south to the beach, you can head north and have just as much fun playing in an indoor waterpark. Big Splash is fun for families of all ages. What kid doesn’t want to stay at a hotel with a waterpark attached to it? Can it get any better? Yes! There is plenty to do in this area, including indoor go-carting, miniature golf and lazer tag, a scenic railroad and ATVs, horseback riding, ziplining and animal encounters at Wilstem.
Happy Halloween Weekends @ Holiday World – Santa Claus, IN
What better way to end your Fall Break than with a weekend of fun a Holiday World with friends and family. Every weekend beginning September 22-October 28, experience Halloween in a whole new light. Open 11am-8pm on Saturdays and 11am-6pm on Sundays, kids can dress up in their Halloween costumes as they visit the 12-acre corn maze and hayrides, Holidogs 3D Halloween Adventure in theatre, a Halloween Magic Show and a staged production called “Lights Out.” There is an activity trail, Carnival Chaos, a spooky, abandoned carnival for older kids and adults, a costume dance party and much more!
Lost River Cave – Bowling Green, KY
Fall weather makes for the perfect time to be outside, which means a trip over to Bowling Green to experience the one and only underground boat tour, with some extra fun of ziplining, is where you should spend some time this Fall Break. You will learn about tales of Civil War soldiers before heading on the boat tour. After the tour, enjoy some fun ziplining over a blue hole. A smaller zipline is offered for kids ages 3-10 under 70lbs and the larger zipline for ages 8 and over with a 250lb limit.
Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular – Louisville, KY
There is plenty to do in Louisville for a fun, family getaway over Fall Break, but the 6th annual Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular is a must-see. Beginning the Tuesday of Fall Break on October 9 with 5,000 carved pumpkins, you will walk ¼ mile on a walking trail viewing not only just jack-o-lanterns, but an “art show”. Head up to Louisville to Iroquois Park any day over Fall Break. The show runs from dusk to 11pm Sunday-Thursday and is open until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights.
