Interesting, colorful, historical tid-bits of the area will be presented by 'Spirits of Wyalusing Past'. The spirits will be located near a 500 foot bluff, overlooking the night lights of Prairie du Chien, and the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers.
Participants will need to be able to walk about 0.5 miles along a path lit by torches and hand-carved, lighted pumpkins. The pathway includes a few steps. Guides will walk along with each group lending assistance when needed.
Free refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the event. The Friends of Wyalusing use funds raised from the event to assist with park projects as well as the Friends of Wyalusing Endowment fund. For more information, call the park office at (609)996-2261 with questions or visit the Friends of Wyalusing web site at www.wyalusing.org. This event may be postponed or cancelled due to inclement weather. Last year's Spirits of Wyalusing Past was attended by over 250 people.

There will still be plenty of time to go to the Starsplitters astronomy program after this event.
