Furry Friends:
We do love the furry family members, but we ask that you leave your dogs at home during your visit to the Great Pumpkin Carve.  With the footing, crowds and night-time setting, we want to keep them safe, so we are not allowing dogs at the event.


*This is an outdoor event where the Pumpkin Patch area is in a grassy meadow where there can be divets and unlevel ground.  The 'kid friendly' Haunted Trail is in the tree grove area where there is uneven ground and roots.  We ask that you wear comfortable footwear and dress for outdoor weather.  Unfortunately, the area of the property where the event will take place is hard for wheelchairs and power scooters to manuever on stones and in a field.  With the recent flooding, the grounds are still very soggy in areas, causing bad footing and ruts in the grass, which is making it even more difficult.  We apologize for this and hope our visitors understand, since this is an ongoing concern we have with our outdoor events.


*HAY RIDES: Due to the flooding and wet conditions in the meadow area, we made the decision to not have Hay Rides this year.  The soft ground will make it difficult for the tractors to maneuver - we apologize to any hay ride lovers that look forward to them every year at the event.  Thank you for your understanding.
