Did you know there are 8 different park departments in Hendricks County? As the Parks Foundation, we partner with them all in different ways to fit their community’s needs. One way is hosting a master calendar to find all park events/programs in one place.

You may also find programs from other park partners that support our mission in some way. If you host community events and would like to get on our calendar email us at admin@pfohc.org.

When you find an event or program you want to attend please double-check with the park host before showing up. Sometimes details get changed or we make small mistakes when entering the information. To be on the safe side, always check. You can find the host department in every calendar listings for your convenience.

Have fun at our parks!

Smiley Pumpkin Drop

October 17, 2019 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am


You can watch a giant, 1200 pound pumpkin hoisted hundreds of feet in the air by a crane before being released and falling to it’s untimely and very messy concrete death. Bring the kids for trick-or-treating, bounce houses, balloon animals from a balloon artist, free small pumpkins from Frazee Gardens, tons of giveaways, and lots of fun! The Smiley Morning Show will broadcast live all morning as everyone prepares for complete pumpkin annihilation. Don’t miss it!!
