Good thing your canoe doesn’t have a motor. Motorized vehicles are prohibited on bike/walking paths.😉

Yes- A Haunted Canoe 🛶 can be our alternative to the Haunted Hike. Do 🎃 float 🤔😜?

Can 2Rivers start renting out stand-up paddle boards? 😜

Daaaaang! But it’s lovely. But daaaaang! 😮

Greeting’s from Maryland! This is beautiful.

Winter isnt too far away.

It is with great disappointment that the Friends of Haumersons Pond are announcing the cancellation of the Haunted Halloween Hike. Mother Nature’s excess of rain has caused flooding for the Bark River Trails making them impassable for our volunteers and visitors to hike. “We are truly sad at having to cancel this wonderful event, but we look forward to creating a memorable Halloween experience for community and friends of Haumersons Pond next year” ~ Sarah Healy, creator of and volunteer coordinator of the haunted trails. ...

This was advertised on tv this morning. Is it still canceled?

Shoooot. 😞Contact us again next year!

Sad the event was cancelled, but the good news is that Fort Atkinson Community Theatre is still going to present our Readers Theatre performance! Join us at the library at 6:30pm on Oct 19 for "Halloween's Not Scary Anymore"! Here's a link to our event: www.facebook.com/events/336399003780979/

Why don't you guys move it to the trail behind the fort pool at the clubhouse so it doesn't need to be cancelled

On a positive note we are closer to cold weather! "What" You say. Cold kills the mosquitoes and brings us closer to ice skating time! My kids love the facility and will spend hours down there! Thank you!!!

Maybe it could be a haunted canoeing trail 😊

Darn! Hope the water will recede in time for the Winter Festivities.

So sad but not surprised with all the rain. There is always next year. Maybe you can come up with a plan B in the future in case this happens again.

That is sad, but the park, while beautiful, is often soggy. Wish you could hold the event someplace else outside.

Just seems like just about every event this group has the weather doesn't cooperate 🙁 So sad.

Disappointing and understandable. Looking forward to the next event.

Better safe then sorry!

Haunted Halloween canoe rides?

The Flood of the fall of 2018. Volunteers showed up and proved that our design worked well. A good floor scrubbing, washing of walls and returning the doors to their operational position and we are ready to go. No sandbags to clean up!! Thanks to Craig, Floyd, Rob, Joanne , John and Joel the job is about done. Ready for use. ... See MoreSee Less

You all are amazing! Thank you for all that you do!

Great job on the design Craig! It will stand for many generations. Hopefully they will know to take the doors off too 😉

Turned out much bigger and nicer than I ever imagined. I used to spend more time in that park than just about anyone, year round. So glad more people can enjoy this truly beautiful part of Fort.

Great job volunteers!!!

That is great!! Thank you!!!!

thanks you all

Excellent foresight.

Impressive

Marie Wiesmann - yay!
