(no cost) . Kids will love our beautiful, friendly ponies at the pony rides.
Also, Movie Nights are story-book perfect!
(Different movies are shown each night - all kid friendly) Imagine: After selecting
their favorite pumpkin and enjoying all the farm fun - your little ones, munching on a bag of fresh popped pop-corn and sipping
on a cup of hot chocolate (purchased from one of our own kids who run the Sweet Treats Candy Shop), pumpkin on their lap,
legs dangling from a straw-bale seat watching a 1/2 hour animated movie near the pumpkin patch! It is our favorite time
of the whole festival - families love it!!! Movie nights are Fridays and Saturdays (starting 2nd weekend of the month)
and the movie runs twice, starting when it is dark enough (usually around 6:30pm). (remember - on Fridays we don't
open until 5pm - no early birds - gates will be locked!) Bring a flashlight for night hours to navigate the parking lot
and mazes after dark.
