Haunted Hay Ride at Bear Mountain
This event is suitable for all ages, couples, singles, families or groups. Every night in October brings haunted hay rides. They start at dark and you go in an antique chuck wagon full of hay bales, pulled by a tractor. This isnt a gory, blood and guts, Freddie Kruger ride. Its more an Alfred Hitchcock, Pysco, thriller in the dark ride and sells out early every year.
War Eagle Craft Fair
This is the fair that started it all. Begun in 1954 by the Benton County Rug Weavers Association. It has become the premier juried show in Northwest Arkansas. There is so much history here you must visit their website to appreciate what 59 years has wrought.

Halloween can be a hair-raising experience, especially when you throw over 100 big cats into the mix. Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge's annual Halloween party is the only time you can view our cats in the dark of night. The main compound is open for the whole family to experience the night habits of our lions, tigers, cougars, bobcats, and more. Games, food, and a children's costume contest are all part of the one of a kind experience, and provides fun for all ages. The Spooktacular is the Saturday night before Halloween.
