A venture to this state park is on the must-do list for many, the park being the only spot in North America where you can dig for diamonds and other gemstones and keep your finds.
This October, celebrate the season with a trip to two of the Arkansas Delta's most beloved fall attractions, both open through Oct. 31.
Near Piggott, you'll find Pumpkin Hollow. Spend a beautiful autumn day enjoying all the fun including the corn mazes, hayrides, catfish feeding, pony rides, pig scrambles, farm animals, the Kids’ Barn, the Friendly Forest, kids’ barrel train rides, pond and the Country Bumpkin Playground. New for 2016, it's the Zombie Zip Line (available only on weekends). For older kids and more adventuresome adults, visit the three “Horror in the Hollow” haunted attractions and the Zombie Paintball Patrol (Friday, Saturday, and Halloween nights only). And, of course, you can pick your own pumpkin to decorate at home. For all the details, visit www.PumpkinHollow.com or www.HorrorintheHollow.com.
