It feels a little like a nice autumn day today and that couldn’t be more fitting as one of the area’s most popular annual attractions opens for the season.
Meandher Creek Pumpkin Patch opens to the public at noon today (Saturday) and runs until 6pm.
Attractions at their location just Northwest of Oak Lake include a corn cannon, pumpkin train, the always photogenic bale pyramid, a pumpkin slingshot, mini golf, a haunted barn and oodles of photo ops. Also on-site will be produce for purchase including a wide variety of pumpkins.
The folks operating the patch told me last month that the animal display, store and haunted barn have been on the receiving end of updates for 2019.
As far as the weather, Saturday’s high of 16 will be followed up by a near picture-perfect high of 20 degrees with mainly sunny skies on Sunday says Environment Canada.
The patch will now be open on weekends as well as on Thanksgiving Monday and on October 18 (school inservice) over the same 12-6pm hours. Admission is $6 or $28 for a farm fun pass.
