"Things have never been more like the way they are today in history."  — Dwight D. Eisenhower.

    Indeed, history is oh-so thick, rich, and important — and Tennessee is filled with it. The history of Tennessee is filled with unique characters and personalities that have shaped the state into the place we know and love.

    You can see it all come to life with your family on October 12 when various characters (dressed in historical attire) will interact with a History Hayride as it circuits in the rolling hills of Edgar Evins State park. You'll hear stories and historical accounts from days of yore that will entertain your whole family during the two-and-a-half hour event. 

The park office will serve comlimentary hot beverages. Homemade cookies can be purchased with the proceeds going to a fundraiser for the park. If the weather's cold, there will be a bonfire with marshmallows for roasting. 

To have fun with your family, register on the 14th History Hayride website before October 10th to reserve seating. The registration is $15 per person and can only be made online. Registration for the event closes Oct. 11, and the event is sure to fill up as it has for 14 years. 

The History Hayride takes place at Edgar Evins State Park, 1630 Edgar Evins Park Road in Silver Point on Saturday, October 12th. Hayrides will be running from 1 p.m. - 9 p.m. This is NOT a Halloween event and is not recommended for little children. Registration online only.
