East Otto, New York – Thinking about catching a last glance at the fall foliage in the hills of the Southern Tier? Griffis Sculpture Park in East Otto, NY, part of the Ashford Hollow Foundation, will hold a Fall Walking Tour on Saturday, October 27, 2012 from 12 noon to 5 pm. Guided group walking tours are scheduled for 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm. It’s the last weekend of the Park season and a great chance to enjoy a beautiful fall outing with the family and friends amidst art and nature.
Other featured activities include a scavenger hunt at 2 pm; rock painting for kids; a Halloween Costume parade at 3 pm; or bring a homebaked pie to enter the pie tasting contest at 4 pm. There will be a beer tasting by the Ellicottville Brewing Company. Free grilled hot dogs will be served while they last. Park-goers are encouraged to bring their own beverages, snacks and picnic if they wish. The event is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted towards the Park’s new public washrooms project.
The event will be held weather permitting; check the Griffis Sculpture Park Facebook page for cancellation info.
Griffis Sculpture Park is located off Route 219 between Springville and Ellicottville, NY. The park is actually split into two sections: Rohr Hill Road Site in Ashford Hollow, NY and Mill Valley Road Site in East Otto, NY. The Fall Walking Tour will be held at the Mill Valley Road Site.
