— Prince Edward Island: This park will have activities throughout September, including an old fashioned fall festival weekend on Sept. 16-18. “We encourage campers to join us for a picnic with hot dogs and lemonade or they can bring their own picnic lunch,” said Rachel DeCourcey, park co-manager and activities director. “We will have several games, including three legged races, a tug of war between parents and kids, potato sack races and an ice cream social.” The last two weekends of September will be Magic Pumpkin Weekends with Halloween themed crafts, games and trick or treating.
