S'More Fun

 Labor Day at Perrot State Park is filled with fun activities for the whole family. For the past 8 years they have been celebrating the last big weekend of summer with the S'More Extravaganza.

Note: Some Mores (S'Mores) date back a hundred years.  

Let the fun begin

On Sunday, hopefully after their dinner time, everyone gathers by the Nature Center to toast the end of the season.

Kids of all ages welcome

Fires are lit and the goodies are spread out (needing two eight foot tables) to begin the creative culinary assemblage of the perfect, most delicious s'more. Over 30 different items to make your sweet treat even sweeter.

Mmmm Chocolate graham crackers

Have you ever tried oatmeal cookies instead of graham crackers? Or a peanutbutter cup instead of just plain chocolate. This is not an activity for marshmallow purists. You can even try fruity flavored marshmallows.

Caramel layering

Of course you can't eat just one, because the choices are calling everyone back to the table to see if they missed the sprinkles, frosting, a layer of caramel or even a little European twist with some Nutella.

Thanks to the Friends of Perrot, who sponsor the Nature Center events at Perrot State Park for another wonderful summer.

Check out the latest in t-shirts offered for sale. From kids to Adults 2X Love that they glow in the dark. Sales of shirts go towards the Friends activities.


  1. I personally like a Granny Smith apple cut into slices, slathered with peanut butter and then a hot smooshy marshmallow and then topped with another slice of apple. It tastes like a caramel apple and I can at least pretend it';s healthy.
