What You'll Get
A recently discovered alternative to the indoors, going "outside" offers adventurous explorers exposure to things such as wind, sunshine, and the naturally occurring mazes found in cornfields. Leave the indoors with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a festival package for two to Swines, Steins, and a Race to the Finish Line, the harvest festival that runs September 24–25 at French Prairie Gardens in St. Paul (a $33.98 value). The package includes:
- One-day admission for two (a $17.98 value)
- Two beer mugs, plus eight tasting tickets (a $16 value)
The festival runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on September 24 and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 25, with tastings beginning at 11 a.m. each day.
With its annual fall-harvest festival, Swines, Steins, and a Race to the Finish Line, French Prairie Gardens sets the stage for a day of family-friendly fresh-air fun. Today's Groupon allows revelers to attend either day of the festival, during which they can haul their souvenir mugs to the beer area to sample Oregon craft brewskies from hops-slingers such as Widmer Brothers Brewery and Ninkasi Brew Company. Groups of fleet-footed pink piggies race for bragging rights in the Pigtucky Derby, and teams of human speedsters attempt to outpace each other on an obstacle course that starts with a 40-foot hay pyramid and hay slide. Attendees can also discuss the latest tractor technology with the critters in the farm-animal display, attempt to navigate the two-acre corn maze, or luxuriate in a leisurely hayride.
