The Joseph Smith Historic Site is renowned as a draw for visitors to the city of Nauvoo, Illinois. On Saturday, October 26, guests not only will have a chance to visit the site one more time before it closes for the winter, but they’ll be able to enjoy the city's annual Pumpkin Walk and parade.
The event, a Halloween treat suitable for the entire family, will feature hundreds of unique, hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns that will be displayed along Mulholland Street, route of a delightful parade. Many merchants will extend operating hours and offer special treats.
In just days, travelers will begin a milestone tour to the Holy Land sponsored by the Community of Christ Historic Sites Foundation.
The event, the foundation's first to the land where Jesus walked, will feature three stages.
The first, a "pre-tour" October 20-23, will include visits to Petra and the Dead Sea. The main tour, scheduled October 22-31, will feature Jerusalem, Nazareth, Caesarea, and Jericho. Finally, the “post-tour” event, Oct. 30-Nov. 4, will treat guests to the pyramids and the Red Sea.
Highlights will include stories about the church’s history in the region.
