Halloween activities in Northeast Arkansas? Scroll down this page and you will see the
all of those in Northeast Arkansas, sorted by county. Some are
farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm
stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some are simple
roadside stands. Most have loads of pumpkins to choose from. To really make it
fun for your kids, look for those that have the extra activities, like a corn
maze, spook house, or hayride. There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of
course, the more elaborate mazes tend to charge more. Hayrides are often free.

A visitor writes on October 08, 2014: "They have playground equipment, a buried space pod to
play in, a tire dragon, cotton cage, photo booths, fire pits, little
jam house and all kinds of other stuff. They've started mildly
haunting the corn maze last year so it makes it fun. I went every
year in college. "
