Kids of ALL ages find something fun to do at The Fall Family Festival at Russell Crossroads!
LOCATION CHANGED. Mother Nature and a soggy forecast may have forced us to change the location of this year’s Fall Family Festival, but she can’t stop the fun. Rain or shine, all of the fun fall activities will be happening at Cole’s Shop off of Willow Point Cutoff Road near the entrance to Willow Point.
LOCATION CHANGED due to weather! Make sure you bring the entire family down for a morning filled with FUN! The Fall Family Festival is also a learning experience. We will have our working grist mill and a blacksmith in the Blacksmith Shop. So, make plans to be there! Yes, there is a charge, but it’s only $25 per family.
The Russell Lands Fall Family Festival will be here before we know it, and it promises to be bigger and better this year! As always, the event’s focus is on the kids! With that in mind, we will open up the Pumpkin Patch, and have pumpkin carving and decorating, a real firetruck for the kids to climb in and on, horseback rides and, of course, arts and crafts. This year, we are adding a few new things!
The Fall Family Festival is a must do autumn event at Russell Crossroads! ‘ Yo ho ho’ it’s so neat to watch all the young Buccaneers out chasing pirate booty in our Pirates of Crossroads scavenger hunt! We love catching those smiles as they watch kernels of corn transformed into corn meal, sit on the back of a horse, and pick out the perfect pumpkin in the Pumpkin Patch!
Meet the one critter that’s on everyone’s Thanksgiving guest list. Live turkeys, of the domestic variety, will be at the Naturalist’s Cabin for some serious turkey talk. In addition to the birds of honor, an assortment of items left behind by the Eastern Wild Turkey will be available for handling and instruction.

If you’ve been around Naturalist Marianne Hudson for a while, you know she isn’t fazed by the macabre. Slimy things, bones—whatever—just don’t seem to bother her. This month is not exception. In honor of Halloween, she takes the plunge into the dark abyss of all things creepy. Juxtapose that with a cheerful romp through the changing fall forest. Yep, this is why we love her!
