Thunder Mountain Fall Festival Preparations Have Begun!

We were excited during the planning phase for our Thunder Mountain Fall Festival happening this October, but now that we've physically gotten some of the preparations underway at our Lake of the Ozarks family attraction, we are ecstatic and giddy with anticipation! The staff here at Bridal Cave and Thunder Mountain Park has already been very busy getting the park decorated, but there's a lot more coming before October gets here. 

We've Added MORE Festival!
We're not the only ones looking forward to our Fall Festival. Due to the large amount of inquiries since we first announced it, we have made the wonderful decision to keep the festival fun open EVERY DAY IN OCTOBER instead of just on the weekends, with bluegrass entertainment and demonstrations added on the weekends. We'd like to extend an extra-special thank you to Camdenton Farm & Garden Center, who is the sponsor for this year's incredible event. 

The Work So Far...
There are a lot of amazing things in the works for you to enjoy once October gets here. Some of the things we have already began working on (which involves a LOT of crafting) are:
  • Fall arrangements
  • Stuffing dozens of scarecrows
  • Unloading and placing over 1,000 pumpkins
  • Laying out the Pumpkin Chunkin' range
  • Building a fire pit area for toasting s'mores (Yum!) 
  • Cutting firewood
  • Construction of a huge corn crib
  • Setting up demonstration areas and a stage for the weekend entertainment
  • Building a Minecraft-inspired hay bale maze (so far we've already used over 600 bales of straw!) 

Supporting Local Business
We are very proud of the fact that all of the produce that will be used to decorate our scenic Lake of the Ozarks attraction has been produced locally by Central Missouri farmers. Not only does it feel great to support local farmers, but we are also able to sell items at greatly reduced prices because of this during the festival. In total, over six semi loads of fall decorations will be used to decorate Thunder Mountain Park. 

Festival Fun
As we mentioned, on the weekends there will be the added excitement of demonstrations and live music. On Saturdays and Sundays you can experience: 
  • Sarsaparilla Making - 9 am - noon
  • Pumpkin Painting Artist - 1-4 pm
  • Live Bluegrass Music - noon - 3 pm
Some of the things that you can look forward to all week long are:
  • Jumbo Tic-Tac-Toe
  • Bean Bag Toss
  • Corn Crib 
  • Hay Bale Maze
  • Hay Bale Mountain
  • Fire Pits
  • Tasty Fall Treats (s'mores, pumpkin fudge, caramel apples, hot cider, and more!) 
  • Gorgeous Mums For Sale
  • Spectacular Pumpkins To Pick From 

The scenery surrounding our popular Lake of the Ozarks attraction is always gorgeous, but autumn always adds its own special beauty to everything outdoors. Make your plans now to visit Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park during October so that you can experience the amazing Thunder Mountain Park Fall Festival that we are busy getting ready for you. Preparing is fun, but seeing you enjoy it will be even better!
