- $11 for admission for one to the Pumpkin Festival ($19 value)
The 2015 Pumpkin Festival includes cow-milking contests, sack races and other games, live music, pumpkin art, and unlimited pony, tractor train, and horse-drawn hay rides. The festival takes place October 3–4 and October 10–12.
Baby goats and calves lounge on straw in a petting zoo while wolves and black bears frolic just yards away. It's not a radical experiment in natural selection, though; it's just part of the varied attractions at Charmingfare Farm. After taking in the entire zoo—from pigs to camels—guests can avail themselves of such diversions as trail rides atop one of the farm's friendly horses. Horse-drawn hayrides and sleigh ride socials culminate in a stop at a roaring bonfire where guests can cook all the hotdogs and 'smores they've captured in the wild.
