Pumpkin foods, drinks and carving competitions. Cooler weather, pumpkin and pecan inspired foods and drinks, live music!

Ready to see 3,000 Mexican free-tailed bats at Old Tunnel State Park head back home for the year?! Depending on weather and the bats themselves, you may get the chance to see exactly that! Come enjoy the fall weather in Fredericksburg Texas! For one weekend each year, the sleepy town of Bankersmith, Texas (a few miles from the Old Tunnel State Park Bat Tunnel) throws a family friendly Halloween Party and becomes the center of ALL THAT IS FALL. A FREE hay ride and huge pumpkin patch for the kids and a Halloween Contest for all age groups. Plenty of farm animals to pet and feed. Food and drink concessions abound, and even a Hay Ride for kids and adults alike. To reserve your Old Tunnel Bat Tour call the toll-free information line at 1-866-978-2287
