Horse drawn wagon rides part of fall celebration Oct. 13

HAMLIN TOWNSHIP — A fall celebration will be held at Ludington State Park on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 4 to 6 p.m. The event will include a horse-drawn wagon ride, doughnut holes, apple juice, music by 80 Cows, a beach campfire and the beautiful views at the Lake Michigan Beach House.

The event is sponsored by Friends of Ludington State Park in conjunction with Ludington State Park and Soberalski Farm’s Draft Horses of Pere Marquette Township.

The wagon ride drawn by the farm’s draft horses will be through a portion of the park. Cops and Doughnuts’ doughnut holes and natural apple juice from Indian Summer will be served at the Lake Michigan beach house.

A local musical trio, 80 Cows, will perform upstairs by the fireplace. Band member Mike Lenich said the group is named after a saying from member Deb Chase’s father who said 80 cows is the perfect number for a small dairy farm herd. It’s pretty good for a band, too, which is rounded out by Dan Mahinyski on bass.

Park interpreter Alan Wernette will be on hand to answer any questions about the exhibits in the beach house.

There is no cost, though donations to, and memberships with, Friends of Ludington State Park are encouraged. A Michigan Recreation Passport is required for motor vehicles entering the park.
