Great fun for the little ones

Great little local events for little ones. My 3 year old loves the train pulled by the lawn tractor. Go early in year because they do run out of pumpkins.

This is really a neat place to visit. It is best to come early on in the season, as they sometimes run out of pumpkins.

You can easily spend several hours there, especially if you take children. We took the buggy ride and the train ride. We toured the entire park. Not one complaint of being tired. We all enjoyed ourselves.

pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere and the corn bin for the kids is so much fun. The family and staff members are so friendly and helpful. Wish they had more vendors, crafts and seasonal items for sale. Nice selection for snack foods and drinks. Its a great way to spend the day.
