You have until October 31 to enjoy an Autumn fun, family getaway filled with country Fall activities when you venture to Lincoln Ridge Farms in Convoy, Ohio and attend their 28th annual Fall Mums & Pumpkin Festival. All activities are offered every weekend in October.
A 5th generation family farm, Lincoln Ridge Farms has a wide variety of Fall and harvest-related activities that will delight all members of the family. Visitors will be able to take a haywagon ride to the Farm’s pumpkin patch where they can pick their own perfect pumpkin to take home. Don’t miss the chance to “race to the end” on the “Hootmobile” trailway in pedal race cars. A perennial kids’ favorite is The Great Pumpkin Jump where children can jump to their heart’s content. Meet and greet the Farm’s barnyard animals and play prospector as you pan for gold and gemstones at Ridge River Mining. And don’t forget to see if you can make your way through the Farm Scene Investigation 3- acre Corn Maze.
One activity the kids will love is the chance to climb Straw Mountain and then zip back down on the Zipline Express. And make sure you take your turn at the “Punkin Chuckin’” station where you can see how high you can make a pumpkin fly. Other activities include Ducky Derby Races, The Great Autumn Adventure (where you walk underground and enter a forest filled with nighttime creatures, if you dare), rides on a barrel train, visiting a 440 foot tall wind turbine and taking the trail to Wanda the Witch’s House. For those visitors with younger children, there is a Little Punkin Playland designed specifically for kids 4 and under.
When it’s time to take a momentary pause, you can purchase lots of tasty Festival food for your dining pleasure. For flower lovers, there will be lots of gorgeous mums in vivid colors for you to see and buy (more than 30 colors to choose from). The Lincoln Candle Shop will be open during the Festival offering Fall and Christmas merchandise for sale.
