4-H Halloween Extravaganza

  • Sunday, October 31, 2021, 1:00 AM - 3:00 PM


The Saratoga County 4-H will be hosting an Open House Halloween Extravaganza on Halloween! The event is Free and open to the public. Activities will begin at 1PM at the Saratoga County 4-H Training Center on Middleline Road in Ballston Spa. The public is invited to join in the fun of trick-or-treating, hay rides, games, arts & crafts, animal meet & greet, and more! Costumes are HIGHLY recommended! No need to sign up for the extravaganza, just arrive and enjoy!

4-H members will be able to participate in club booths, achievement awards, 4-H Horse Show, and have an opportunity to “compete” in a Halloween Scarecrow Contest. 4H Members and clubs will have a chance to build, decorate, and submit real-life scarecrows which will then be displayed and judged on creativity during the Extravaganza’s hay rides. 4-H, please email Rylie Lear to sign up for specific activities and more details: or call the office 518-885-8995.


Saratoga County 4-H Youth Development is open to all youth in Saratoga County ages 5-18. Saratoga County 4-H offers a diverse range of programming opportunities that allow youth to “learn by doing”. If you would like more information about Saratoga County 4-H you can visit their website at, or call the CCE Saratoga office at 518.885.8995.

This is also a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to see all the 4-H Training Center has to offer and (hopefully) be inspired to join in on the Lead the Legacy Capital Campaign. The Lead the Legacy Campaign is ongoing, and 4-H needs your help! The fundraising is well underway through kind donations from Stewarts/Dake Family, Curtis Lumber and many others, but there is still much work to be done. If you’re interested in learning more, please go to To make a donation, there is a direct PayPal link on the website or through the “Go Fund Me” link at
