Family Fun at Downey’s Farm Pumpkinfest #Review

IMG_6342

I’d say you should go to Downey’s Farm for a couple of hours this Fall with your family but in reality you will need an entire day to fit in all the fun this farm has to offer!  Downey’s Pumpkinfest runs until the end of October and promises to be a super fun outing for your entire family. When we visited last weekend we had an absolute blast.  There was so much to do and see that we didn’t know where to start.

As we pulled in we were greeted by the enormous sea of orange pumpkins upon pumpkins just waiting for us to pick them to take home.

Let the FUN begin…

Enter in the play area and the kids (and adults) we’re excited to try everything out!  So much to do and see including a sand area, climbers, pedal carts, mini golf, wagon ride, boo barn, blackhole and the list goes on and on.

Our kiddos could have spent the entire day on the Jumbo Jumper.  A couple big jumping pillows plunked in the middle of a field with cool tunes blaring in the background, who wouldn’t love these?!  Eventually we had to peel them off so that we could go and experience the rest of the farm.

The band performing on stage wasn’t your typical band but man could they rock.  From the looks of it they had been rockin’ for years but still had the beat!

Their corn maze was awesome.  One of the great things about it is that you can easily get a wagon, stroller or even double stroller through the paths that were cut out.  Complete a word scramble  with clues found throughout the maze and you will be entered to win a pass for a free visit to the farm.

Every weekend during Pumpkinfest they offer live entertainment.   The weekend we went there was Magic Mike who entertained the young and old alike with his magic tricks.  Each weekend there are  different featured entertainers so check and see what the farm has in store for the weekend you are going.  Also be sure to catch their puppet show which had the kiddies cheering and laughing.

My daughter loved the petting zoo area and did not want to leave.  The animals were super friendly and loved to eat corn out of your hand and loved being pet.

Around every corner there were cool places to take pictures in cutouts and of course the kiddies were more than happy to pose for some photos!

Pumpkin Spice donuts sound good to you?  Oh yes they are!  Hubby and I absolutely loved them and left with…well let’s just say enough to feed more than us.  They were delish and didn’t last too long in our house.  Their farm market not only sells delicious baked goods but also decor, seasonal decorations, preserves and WINE!

Be sure to grab a pumpkin and a bite to eat before you head out.  Food choices range from pulled pork sandwiches to hot dogs, candy apples and french fries. And they have the best apple cider!  Choosing a pumpkin may end up being a bit of an adventure.  There are so many different shapes and sizes of pumpkins to choose from, you’ll have a hard time just picking a couple!
