Every October, the quiet vegetables fields at Bastiao Farms come alive with the laughter and shrieks of the annual Halloween festival. On one side of the grounds, a motor-powered train makes its way through the haunted corn maze, a massive, growing labyrinth supplemented by three additional corn and hay-bale mazes plus a Halloween-themed pumpkin patch. In other areas of the grounds, children and adults alike can navigate historically engaging sights that include a one-room schoolhouse and a scaled-down Wild West town featuring wooden saloons, storefronts, inns, and a covered wagon that secretly dreams of becoming a hardtop.
Since 1974, Leone Equestrians has saddled students upon gentle steeds amid the six arenas, pastures, and professional all-weather footing of its show stable. Drawing from years of international horse-show experience, professional instructors guide students of all experience levels through hunter and jumper techniques, providing students with an alternative travel method to mule-pulled shopping carts. Students learn to groom, saddle, and care for their horses, and may linger in the stable outside of class times to witness staff members exercising the noble beasts. Students should prepare for lessons with helmets, long pants, and heeled boots, and abstain from wearing loose jewelry or cumbersome chain-mail veils.
