We visited Heritage Hill Historical Park in Lake Forest last year for their inaugural Fall-O-Ween event. We had such a fun time running around taking pictures at all the fun photo opportunities, checking out the gorgeous scenery decked in lights, and enjoying the Fall and Halloween season at this beautiful Orange County park. We are so happy to see that it’s coming back for 2023!
It’s gotten to be a habit for us girls to dress for the photo opps, and last year was no different. We chose dark Fall colors to complement the beautiful settings available to us.
Top our outfits with the perfect golden hour lighting and we were in pure Fall heaven.
There are so many fun Halloween events happening in Orange County this year, and we were happy to check out Fall-o-Ween in person.
As you go into the park, you are encountered with a hay maze that kids (and dogs!) will like to go through over and over again.
Once you’re out of the maze, stop for a moment to take pictures on the hay! It’s a fun picture against all the hay.
As you walk outside of the hay maze, stop and check out the haunted wagon. It’s picture perfect with all the cool skeletons and pumpkins.
Down the stairs you’ll find a creepy looking cemetery.
A little beyond that is our favorite photo opportunity – the old school house.
For this shot we zoomed out on our iPhone to capture the entire school house. We were there around 5:30 for the most beautiful golden hour lighting.
We headed out to the spider house after and got there just in time. We managed to see it in both daylight and evening light!
Finally, there’s one last photo opp, and it’s right up against the fence. A pile of hay surrounded by pumpkins.
