Harvest Nights Newfields 

This spooky, not scary after-dark event is fit for the whole family and is sure to be a frightful and delightful evening under Indiana’s chilly harvest sky. Wander through fog-filled forests filled with glowing jack-o-lanterns galore in the Pumpkin Path of Peril, feel the Ghost Train rumble beneath your feet and witness The Three Graces come to life in the party of the century at Mischief Manor. While you wander, sip on a Campfire Cocoa made with Hotel Tango’s savory and sweet Toasted Marshmallow Bourbon, and snack on some caramel corn from Just Pop In!, or some Cinnamon Bavarian Crème Churros. New this year guests are invited inside Lilly House to join in the frightful festivities of Mischief Manor. Check out If you’re lucky (or…unlucky) you’ll meet other party guests along the way.
