Zombies and Christmas carols in Erie

In fall, Anderson Farms is the place to be with a 30-acre corn maze, hay rides, barrel train, and pedal carts. At night, you can even scare yourself silly with a Zombie Paintball Hunt that'll test your survival skills. In December, you can start the holiday season off right at the Country Christmas and Parade of Lights where you can indulge in lip-smackingly gooey and delicious s'mores and sing carols on a free hay ride. Erie vacation rentals are great to stay in for the Erie Air Fair, where you can take a thrilling helicopter ride, then listen to live music and wander past interesting historical displays.

Movies in the park in Erie

Erie has satisfyingly distinct seasons with an impressive number of clear, sunny days. Summer has temperatures hovering in the mid 80s, and is a lovely time for a game of golf or spending a day at the lake swimming and boating. Erie parks are perfect for watching the sunset before kicking back and enjoying an outdoor movie. Winter, meanwhile, is cold and snowy with temperatures ranging from around 16 to 22 degrees. Once the snow falls, it's time to head to the nearby Rocky Mountains and sled down steep hills on tubes or toboggans, or take things slow with a snow-shoe trek through silent forests.
