The Smyrna Parks and Recreation’s Halloween in the Park returns to Sharp Springs Natural Area this weekend. Featuring costume contests, haunted hayrides, a haunted corn maze, games, prizes, and more, this event has been a staple in the Smyrna community for 25 years.

Events like this bring our community together and help maintain our small-town feel.”
