    Stay as long as you like at the Pumpkin Patch which includes hayrides, spooky tunes and other seasonal music.

Delicious lunch items are available for purchase.

    Prices range from $10 to $40 per ticket. Due to the popularity of this event, there are no discounts available. Please check out calendar for dates and times of departures.
