October 26….Heritage Halloween - The National Ranching Heritage Center will host an old-fashioned Harvest Festival. Trick-or-Treaters can fill their bags with period-correct treats as they visit several of the historic structures at the NRHC. Also offered are $1 hayrides through the park, a cakewalk at the McLaughlin Arbor and making fall crafts in the Four Sixes Barn. “Heritage Halloween is an opportunity for children to enjoy the holiday in a safe and educational way,” said event coordinator and Manager of Education Emily Arellano. “As children in costume visit the historic buildings, their treats will be period-correct for each house. For example, at the 1909 Barton House, volunteers will be handing out Hershey’s Kisses, which were developed in 1907. At the 1886 Las Escarbadas division of the XIT Ranch, Trick or Treaters will receive Tootsie Rolls, which were developed in 1896.” Arellano added that the community has been very supportive of this event. “The Maize is providing corn and shocks to decorate the historical park and the Ranch Hosts volunteers will demonstrate traditional activities such as pulling taffy,” she said. Cogdells General Store will be open with Halloween decorations, gifts and fall merchandise. Admission is free to the public, but donations are welcome at the door.
