Hayrides and S’more Fun

Hayrides and S’more fun

In South Florida, where the advent of autumn isn’t trumpeted by a big change in the weather (unless you count the conclusion of hurricane season), there is one seasonal ritual that says “fall” as well as any other: Broward County’s Parks’ Family Hayrides and Campfires. 

Beginning Fridays and Saturdays this month, families can spend a weekend evening enjoying a bit of nature and some old-fashioned fun on a hayride through one of four parks. The fun doesn’t stop when the ride does, though, as everyone gathers around a campfire to warm things up — including marshmallows for making s’mores. 

 The events cost are $3.50/person, which includes one hayride and a bag of s’mores fixings. Preregistration and prepayment are required by calling or visiting the park of your choice. The regular weekend gate fee of $1.50/person (children 5 and under free) will be in effect at Markham Park.
