Autumn is the only season where pumpkins are judged by their personality as well as their performance in the swimsuit competition. Get to know fall's finest with today's Groupon to the Fall Festival 2011 at Vertuccio Farms in Mesa, held from October 1 to November 12. Children aged four and younger receive free admission. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get one day's admission for two people (up to a $14 value).
- For $13, you get one day's admission for four people (up to a $28 value).
The Vertuccio family shares 40 acres of Mesa countryside with families celebrating the autumn season. The 10-acre maize maze challenges visitors of all ages to race toward the finish line without stopping to hug lonely scarecrows, and the pumpkin patch displays a selection of nascent jack-o'-lanterns. Guests can swing by the petting zoo or hop aboard a pony ride for a chance to scratch behind fuzzy ears, and a roster of other rides and attractions lets tots check bounce houses, train rides, and pedal racecars off their crayon-scrawled bucket list. Free parking and a full concessions stand allow families to spend an entire afternoon at the farm, conjuring up a slew of smiles in the crisp fall air.
Though Vertuccio Farms features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
To turn right, or to turn left? At Vertuccio Farms, that is the question. It's all thanks to a 7-acre corn maze with sky-high stalks and dozens of twists and turns. Once you escape the maze—or rather, if you escape—go ahead and check out some of the other fall-themed attractions that await across the farm. They include a giant jump pad, duck races, and a tractor train ride. The petting zoo invites you to visit with sheep, cows, and baby scarecrows, while the pumpkin patch boasts great orange gourds in all sizes.
