It’s not just area children who dress up in costumes for Halloween. In Kentucky, horses do, too! On Saturday, Oct. 26, at 2:00 pm, the Kentucky Horse Park will present its annual Halloween Show where park horses and their riders are likely to show up in just about anything – from a scary headless horseman, cranky wicked witch, hip 60s chick, swashbuckling pirates, genie with a bottle, Phantom of the Opera – it’s different every year.
Throughout the day, the park will offer discounted admission to guests who arrive in costume: adult admission will be $12.00 (normally $16.00) and there will be no charge for children 12 and under (normally $8.00) – no full-head masks, please. Treats will be given out to children and dogs upon arrival at the park (dogs required to be on a leash at all times).
Not to be left out, the KHP Campground produces the annual Halloween Campout Oct. 25-27. Campers have a frightfully good time with costume awards, trick or treating, kid’s crafts, golf cart parade, entertainment and more. The event is sponsored in part by Northside RVs, Halloween Express and the KHP Foundation. Full service sites are full for 2013, but the campground has unlimited primitive camping still available at $20/night.
