If my schedule works out, I’ll be taking advantage of a deal & heading out to Stone Mountain Park at least one day next month to check out the annual Pumpkin Festival, which takes place on Fridays-Sundays from September 29-October 29, 2017.

During the Pumpkin festival, you can go on a Trick-or-Treat Scavenger Hunt, join Spookley the Square Pumpkin for a Dance-A-Long Party Parade, compete in a pie-eating contest, get creative with crafts at the Great Pumpkin Junction, & more.

Want to head out on the cheap? Take advantage of one of these deals:

While you’re at Stone Mountain Park, save time to take A Tour of Southern Ghosts, which takes place on Thursdays through Sundays from October 13-29, 2017. During the 45-minute tour, you’ll hear tales of famous (and not-so-famous) southern ghosts as you meander along the lantern-lit paths of the Antebellum Plantation grounds.

Admission to A Tour of Southern Ghosts is not included with your Pumpkin Festival Adventure Pass, but it’s relatively cheap to add it on: Same-day tickets to A Tour of Southern Ghosts are $17 for adults & $8 for children (age 12 & under).

That said, you can go on the cheap:

A note about parking: If you walk or ride a bike to Stone Mountain Park, there’s no parking fee. Otherwise, it’s $15. If you must drive & aren’t opting to buy a Mountain Member or Mountain Member PLUS pass, spring for the $40 annual permit if you plan to visit multiple times to take advantage of free special events or the park’s free outdoor activities and laser show.

Stone Mountain Park is located at 1000 Robert E. Lee Dr., Stone Mountain. Technically, the main entrance is located at U.S. Highway 78 East, Exit 8, Stone Mountain, but online mapping programs often don’t like the address.
