Sunday, Sept. 14 is right around the corner, so Papa and the family are busy getting ready to welcome you! 2014 marks our 32nd year as Papa’s Pumpkin Patch, and we are amazed at how excited everyone is about the season.
Already, we have dozens of birthday parties scheduled; over 1,500 school and day care children confirmed for field trips; and several corporate events planned. The number of charitable organizations volunteering to create the magic at Papa’s is over 40 with nearly 500 individuals who will help throughout the season.
Papa’s season is 41 days this fall: from Sunday, Sept. 14 to Saturday, Oct. 15. We’ll be open from 12-7 pm daily, and there are at least 20 free activities and photo opportunities waiting for you. In addition, on Thursday evenings from 5-7 pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 12-6 pm, we add several more fun activities for a small fee. These include zip lines, pedal carts, pony rides, horse-drawn hay rides, train rides and concessions. We also shoot off the pumpkin trebuchet and pumpkin cannon at these times.
Be sure to check Papa’s website or Facebook page before you plan your trip to Papa’s…just in case we are challenged by Mother Nature!
We are just as excited as you are for the 2014 season, and we hope see you soon!!
