Hersheypark Amusement Park has been teasing for weeks that they would announce BIG news today, and boy did they mean big! Inspired by the legacy of founder Milton S. Hershey, Hersheypark is gearing up for a $150 million transformational expansion! Opening in summer 2020, Hershey’s Chocolatetown is a new region at Hersheypark where guests can eat, play, shop and gather year round as part of the development of 23 acres.
Fall is finally here, which means one of my favorite holidays is upon us… Halloween!! Last year we enjoyed sweet fun celebrating the spookiest of days at Hersheypark in the Dark Halloween Attraction at Hersheypark Amusement Park. We are beyond psyched that once again, Hersheypark will offer the Happiest Halloween with this popular seasonal event! Plus the Creatures of the Night experience will return to Zoo America North American Wildlife Park during Hersheypark in the Dark hours.
It won’t be long before school stars back up, the air becomes a bit more cool and crisp, and the leaves start to change to their rich warm hues! That also means Annapolis, Marland area fall festivals are in full swing!! If you are as excited for Fall as I am, you’ll definitely want to check out the list of fun family fall celebrations complied by Visit Annapolis & Anne Arundel County (VAAAC)! You won’t want to miss these local celebrations offering unique culture and cuisine experiences!

When I think of summertime nostalgia, I think of my days as a kid out by the pool, long car rides to the beach, riding our bikes late into the evening since the sun was still up… and surrounding a fire pit, roasting marshmallows for one of our favorite summer treats: s’mores! Since today, August 10, is National S’mores Day, HERSHEY’S Chocolate World is celebrating all things s’mores!
We are so excited that Hersheypark Amusement Park announced today its 2019 plans for a brand new interactive dark ride, Reese’s Cupfusion! Combining everyone’s love of chocolate and peanut butter with an amazing dark ride experience with advanced, multi-level game player technology, will be sure to create a ride that the whole family can enjoy! The new interactive attraction will be located in Founder’s Way and is slated to open in the Summer of 2019.
