Time: Noon - 3:30pm

What better way to enjoy the sights of fall than with an afternoon of family-oriented fun! Join us at the Equestrian Center of Carlisle Reservation (located at 13630 Diagonal Road, LaGrange, 44050) for an old-fashioned horse-drawn hay wagon ride and a walk through our six-acre corn maze! Horse-drawn wagons leave about every fifteen minutes from in front of the grandstand at the Equestrian Center of Carlisle Reservation. The wagon rides last approximately one half hour. Waits are common for this program; please plan that into your trip as ticket sales end at 3:30pm. And don’t forget to try your hand finding your way through our large six-acre corn maze! A new design is implemented each year; test your navigation skills while learning a little trivia along the way at various points in the maze. Don’t forget to ring the bell once you’ve reached the middle!

Tickets for each of these activities are $2 each, available for purchase at the grandstand at the Equestrian Center of Carlisle Reservation until 3:30pm. Children three and under receive a free ticket. The concession stand will also be open and refreshments are available for a small fee. As always, these outdoor programs are weather dependent. Please call ahead (440-458-5121) the day of the program in case of inclement weather or high wind advisories.

Music under the stars

FRENCH CREEK THEATRE PRODUCTIONS

2017-2018 Season: October 2017 - August, 2018
Performances: Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays
Cost: $10 - $18 per ticket
Location: French Creek Nature & Arts Center

Theatre has the privilege and the power to reach us exactly where we are in our lives. In hope or hardship, in revelry or wretchedness, our own experiences are reflected in the stories onstage. Seeing the semblance of ourselves in other characters can help us make sense of life’s complexities, finding what we stand for; or sometimes we’re simply reminded what a wonder life is, giving us cause to celebrate. French Creek’s 2017-2018 Season features the fun and the fearless, the playful and the provocative, offering audiences an extraordinary breadth of theatrical performance to enjoy and connect with. Keeping that in mind, we present to you our 2017-2018 French Creek Theatre season. See you at the theatre!

Purchase tickets to any of this season's shows by visiting the French Creek Theatre website or by calling 440-949-5200.
