LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Many of Michigan’s state parks are planning harvest festivals in October to wind up the summer camping season.

Each park’s event has unique features, but most include activities such as pumpkin carving, costume contests and trick-or-treating.

The first harvest festival begins Thursday at Bay City State Recreation Area. Seven others begin Friday.

Others kick in throughout the month. The last festivals are scheduled for Oct. 24 at Cheboygan State Park, Hayes State Park in Lenawee County and Bald Mountain Recreation Area in Oakland County.

Most harvest festival activities are free for registered campers and some are open to the public, but a Recreation Passport is required for park entry and camping fees apply.
