4 Things That You Will Love During Autumn In Pulaski County USA!

“Autumn”- almost a magical word, it brings a promise of beautiful colors, hearty comfort food, pumpkin; apple; caramel; and cinnamon flavors, hoodies, leaf piles, bonfires, the harvest, and time with family. It might also make you think of jack o’ lanterns and things that go bump in the night. All the glorious things that are pictured in your mind when you hear the word are right here, waiting for you and your family, in Pulaski County, Missouri. Pumpkin patches, the farmers market, Oktoberfest food & celebrations, harvest festivals and these 4 things below that you absolutely can not miss, Pulaski County USA is the heart of Fall!

1. Boiling Spring Campground Precision Cut Corn Maze- This is not your average corn maze! Rob Stouffer of Precision Mazes whittled away 300-400 bushels of corn out of the 10+ acres that were planted to create this corn maze gem! He incorporated the FIREBALL RUN logo into the maze and after 8 hours of cutting he had carved out over 17,000 feet of pathways for families to get lost in together as they make their way through the jumble of corn stalks. One of a handful of Precision Mazes in Missouri, Boiling Spring Campground’s maze is sure to be a highlight of your family’s Autumn!

2. Haunted Hill- Missouri’s most frightening haunted experience, Haunted Hill has been described as the highlight of October and so creepy that the “place made my skin crawl during the day”. More than a haunted house, Haunted Hill is a trail that winds through an Ozark Mountain forest and leads you through several buildings, each one with its own ghoulish delights! At the end of the trail you feel a sense of accomplishment, survival, and relief, but the adrenaline, and the Hill itself will stick with you for a time.

3. Haunted River Float- Nothing compares to the thrill of Halloween season on the Big Piney River! Grab your pals and jump into your raft as you float in the darkness and experience the river like never before! The spookiness looms ahead and the unknown is unnerving! And then….you hear the banjo! More haunted experiences await you once you get off the river before your hayride back to the warm bonfire at the campground.

4. Paranormal Investigations of the Historic Talbot House- An evening you won’t soon forget! Spend the evening conducting your own paranormal investigation in one of Waynesville’s oldest homes. The house was built in 1885 by Reverend Albert Davis who died in his bedroom three years later after suffering from burns he received while heroically fighting a fire that consumed part of the towns business row south of the Square. In the 125+ year history of the home it has served as a hotel, a doctor’s office, a boarding house, an antiques store, and a landmark of Waynesville.

"Scary Car" from Transformers Age of Extinction will be in Waynesville October 2nd at the Fireball Run finish line!

“Scary Car” from Transformers Age of Extinction will be in Waynesville October 2nd at the Fireball Run finish line!

ORLANDO FLORIDA- FIREBALL RUN, an online reality travel series announces the “Scary Cars” as seen in Transformers: Age of Extinction, Directed by Michael Bay will participate in Season 8 FIREBALL RUN America’s Frontier.

Rally Fighter vehicles, manufactured by Arizona based Local Motors, have had an ongoing presence in the FIREBALL RUN series since 2012.

The public is encouraged to come out to the public event in Downtown Waynesville on October 2, from 3- 6 pm for the live filming of the FIREBALL RUN series, meet the drivers of all 40 participant vehicles, and then get up close with the Rally Fighter movie cars.

Unlike the typical reality TV series, the FIREBALL RUN is filmed in real time. The competition is somewhat similar to the 1980’s Cannonball Run movie starring Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise as a team of drivers in a wacky coast-to-coast race from New York to California. Unlike the movie however FIREBALL RUN teams are not road racing, instead teams from all over the world participate in a life-size, brain-challenging, trivia pursuit game called an adventurally (adventure-rally). Their vehicles serving as pawns on a massive game board the size of America. To advance from city to city and score they solve trivia based on a geographical position. After which they must complete a series of tasks ranging from zany to life-changing. And if you’re wondering what the prize is- don’t set your hopes too high. Teams compete for bragging rights and a plastic road sign, all while raising awareness for missing children.

The FIREBALL RUN series is available on Roku, GoogleTV, Amazon FireTV, and Smart TV on the AdeysTV Channel. All seasons and episodes are also available on YouTube and iTunes.
