The Ferndale Heritage Society is very involved in our local community. Besides being the stewards of Pioneer Park many of our members have taken lead roles in making Ferndale a great place to live and work.
Highway Litter Pickup
Under the organization of Dick Mills, members of the heritage society meet once a quarter, at 7:30am, in the Ferndale McDonalds Restaurant for a complimentary breakfast. This is in preparation for the task of picking up litter along four on / off ramps of Interstate 5. It's a wonderful site to NOT see unsightly trash as travelers enter our city.
Haunt The Park event
The Heritage Society joined in with the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce to host the first Haunt the Park event. This event gives families the opportunity to snoop around the historic haunted houses of Pioneer Park and trick or treat the cabin porches. In our inaugural year, 2015, we saw over 1,300 people through the gates of Pioneer Park. Visitors of all ages were welcomed to come down to Pioneer Park after the Downtown Trick or Treat concluded. Treats were passed out to visitors from six of the decorated log cabin porches by costumed members.
Plan on making this free community event part of your family's Halloween "safe" celebration. The 2106 event will be on Saturday, October 29, 2016, directly after Downtown Trick or Treat!
