|Whimsical Woods program returns to Ernie Miller Park on Oct. 11|
There's nothing scary about a Halloween special event being offered at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's Ernie Miller Park in mid-October. The program is called Whimsical Woods and is for all ages with ages 11 and younger accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Participants will enjoy a walk on the park's trail with the award-winning staff of the Ernie Miller Nature Center. Costumed storybook characters will delight and entertain audiences of all ages. This program consists of a short trail walk with stations featuring interpreters who interact with participants. Participants will meet the Good Fairy and Forest Friends. In addition, there will be live animals, stories, songs, and surprises. Group sessions will begin every 15 minutes, and for participants, the program length will be about one and one-half hours. In case of inclement weather, this event will be moved indoors.
