From event website:
Pumpkin Palooza is a fun, family-oriented farm experience centered around fall’s signature crop: the wondrous pumpkin! Our sunflower field is still in bloom so we are also offering sunflowers!
U-Pick organic pumpkins in our 2 acre patch full of funky varieties in all shapes, sizes, and colors! Feel the crunch of dried pumpkin vines under your farm boots as you hunt for the perfect one to pick. Availability depends on Mother Nature and farmer ingenuity. Pumpkins are priced by size (ranging from $3-$50).
Reserve your spots on our wildly popular Suzie’s Farm Tours (link below). Enjoy wood-fired pizza from our very own cob oven with organic ingredients straight from Suzie’s fields! Juice Wave SD and Harvest Kitchenwill be offering up delicious food. EscoGelato for dessert! Jam out to live music by Fanny and The Atta Boys! Swing by the TReX owl booth to meet Henson the Owl and learn about these beautiful raptors. Kids love the farm! Face painting and pumpkin carving! Photograph a fall-themed family portrait!
