It’s Midcontinent Day on Friday, Sept. 19!

midcontinent-day-at-papasThank Goodness! It’s Friday, Sept. 19, and that means it’s Midcontinent Day at Papa’s Pumpkin Patch!

From 12-7 pm, Midcontinent is welcoming you to Papa’s as their guest. The Midcontinent team is covering your admission (a $4 value), and they are providing guests with $5 in pumpkin cash that can be used anywhere at Papa’s Pumpkin Patch on Friday. In addition, Midcontinent has 1,000 sugar pumpkins to give away to guests.

_MG_2514Pumpkin cash can be used all day Friday, Sept. 19, at a variety of areas: concessions, gift store, train rides, pedal carts, horse-drawn hay rides, pony rides, zip lines, corn cob sling shots and produce. All of Papa’s free activities will also be open on Friday.

It sounds like it will be beautiful Friday. We hope to see you!



Thursdays Are Special At Papa’s!

Dauenhauer's hayridesHow’s your Thursday evening look? Say between 5-7 pm? Papa asks because Thursday evenings from 5-7 pm are special at Papa’s, and we offer all of our extra weekend activities then.

That means you’ll find 20+ free activities, and we will also offer concessions, zip lines, pedal carts, horse-drawn hay rides, pony rides and two train rides for small fees. In addition, the pumpkin cannon and trebuchet will be firing at targets up to 500 feet away!

Papa plans to be open 12-7 pm daily through Saturday, Oct. 25. Be sure to check our website or Facebook page before traveling any distance…just in case Mother Nature has different ideas.

Hope to see you soon!


OH, HAPPY DAY! Papa’s Is Open!!!

barn scene thru leaves loIt’s here. The 2014 season is here! Papa and the family are SO EXCITED we can hardly stand ourselves. We’ve been working non-stop the past two weeks to prepare for this day and our coming pumpkin patch season.

Here’s the scoop: 12-7 pm daily. Today (Sunday, Sept. 14) through Saturday, Oct. 25.

We ask $4/person admission. Infants and toddlers two years old and under are free.

Zip lines, pedal carts, pony rides, horse-drawn hayrides, pumpkin trebuchet and pumpkin cannon, concessions. All of these “extra” activities run from 12-5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays — also Thursdays from 5-7 — and have a small fee. Otherwise, there are more than 20 free activities to enjoy in a beautiful fall setting.

Pumpkins, squash, gourds, decorative corn, straw bales and corn stalks will continue to be hauled into the yards through the end of September. With our cooler summer and wet August, many of the crops are later to ripen and so we’ll be able to keep the yards looking fresh, longer than we have in the past.
