If you are looking for something special to do with your children or grandchildren this fall season, you need to experience the “Spooky Llama Trails & Tales” at the Walnut Ridge Llama Farm conveniently located just off 11-E Highway between Jonesborough and Greeneville in Chuckey, Tennessee. Walnut Ridge Farm and the Chuckey Ruritan Club are partnering together to provide a five week event that does not include devils, blood, gore, or people in “Jason” masks chasing you with a chainsaw.
The event is called “Spooky Llama Trails & Tales” and is based on folklore and legends. So gather the family or church group (youth & adults) together and do something different this autumn season. Take a storytelling and musical hayride through a llama farm hearing the Cherokee legend of the “Wendigo.” The llama trails will take you through a pasture of over 45 llamas, and then you will enter the woods with spooky interactive scenes of a Wendigo cave, a wood hag, scarecrow, dancing zombies and much more. When you reach the top of Walnut Ridge, you will be greeted with various activities including professional storytellers, mountain music, a Native American encampment, arts & crafts, and an area to experience the beauty & gentleness of baby llamas.
Everything is family-oriented with nothing gory or over the top. Appropriate for all ages including the young and young at heart. You will laugh and maybe scream, and you definitely will have a great time!
The entrance for parking and ticket sales will be at the Chuckey Ruritan Ballfield, 290 Chuckey Ruritan Road, South, Chuckey, TN just 500 feet off 11-E Highway near the Chuckey Post Office. Adults/teenagers $10, children 4-12 will be $6, and toddlers 3 and under will be free. 10% of the Spooky Hayride gate will be donated to the Chuckey Ruritan Club for youth activities.
