This is Poplar Grove’s largest fund-raiser of the year and helps maintain and preserve the Manor House, grounds, outbuildings as well as sustain our school and animal programs.

For younger children or families with toddlers, there is a daytime Wagon Ride through the Nature Trail on Saturdays and Sundays starting at Noon and ending at 5:30 p.m. Though this adventure through the woods may be more appropriate for younger children, be advised that all the staging for the evening spooktacular will be visible.
