Locally, Antelope Island in Syracuse is holding its 25th annual Bison Roundup on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28 and 29. The event allows wranglers to gear up and move the park’s herd of free-roaming bison from the southern tip of the Island to the bison corrals on the northern end of the island in preparation to their annual health check-ups.
Those who choose to participate may do so by riding a horse or watching from the road.
Snow Canyon State Park is holding a pair of events on Oct. 22 and 28. On the 22nd, residents may learn about lizards called Gila monsters, while the Oct. 28th event involves learning about possible present day “dinosaurs.”
Other events include a “ghost hunting” investigative event on the 22nd and 29th at the Camp Floyd/Stagecoach Inn State Park, a Fremont Family Halloween Festival at the Fremont Indian Park, and a fun walk-through at Willard Bay’s Halloween Park.
