New Events and Visitor Favorite Programs Coming to Metroparks This Fall
, 2022-09-23 06:32:02,
The first day of fall entered with a snap of crisp weather to remind us all that the season of color, pumpkins, hayrides and Halloween has arrived. With it, the Huron-Clinton Metroparks have a full season of fun lined up. The calendar of fall events includes some brand-new events alongside long-standing visitor favorites. Of course you could spend every day of the season paddling the scenic river views and walking, biking or running through tunnels of colorful trees on Metropark trails, but you won’t want to miss these awesome events either.
NEW EVENT: Shelden Mountain Bike Fest, Stony Creek Metropark
October 1, 2022 | 3 – 9 p.m.
Whether you are new to mountain biking or an expert on the trails, join us on Saturday, October 1 for our first-ever Shelden Mountain Bike Fest at Stony Creek Metropark.
