More details on Pumpkin Day this Saturday
Pumpkin day is all about Fun!; old fashion farm fun, a celebration of the good things of the Fall season. Old farm games such as sack races, pumpkin archery, corn shelling, cob throwing, stilts. (Stilt racing if anyone is up for the challenge?) It is designed with the hope that parents and their children can participate together or at least be active spectators. Thre is no charge for admission to Pumpkin Day. Only certain activities have a charge. A list of happenings include pumpkin painting, pick your own pumpkins, hay rides, pony rides. Each of these activities do have a charge. Something like $7/ pumpkin painted, $16 PYO pumpkin (1st pumpkin -2nd pumpkin $7), $1 /person on hay ride, I don't know what the person charges for pony rides. Most all the other activites have no charge! There is a lot a family can do without worrying about money. We really want you to build great memories not get home stressed out!
A special area is reserved for really young kids with cornstalk tepee, box train ( kids love that simple experience) ,ring toss, cob throwing, little kids stick horses. Other activities for a little older kids include, sack races, stilts, pumpkin archery, corn shelling, cob throwing, apple eating, seed spitting, pumpkin pull.
Activities for all include hog calling, animal sounds, guess the weight of pumpkins and chickens, Naspig races ( they are fantastic!) ,hay maze, meeting the scarecrow characters amid the barnyard and the barnyard with it's many animals.
The bakery has good food, the snack wagon has lots of snacks. If you want fresh apple cider or grape juice from the farm press we should have plenty. A very good selection of apples from the NC mountains and the garden center has lots of Fall flowers and Fall decor. There will be special performances of "clogging" near 11:00 to 12:00 and gospel music by a young band. Hope to see you Saturday!
