Pomeroy Living History Farm kicks off the season with the opening of Pumpkin Lane on Saturday, Oct. 7. This North Bank autumn tradition is open every weekend in October—Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.—through Sunday, Oct. 29. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for children ages three to 11; kids two and under are free.
Admission provides your family with a day’s worth of fun and activities, including the popular mile-long hayride around Pumpkin Lane, featuring over 100 “pumpkin people” arranged in various themed vignettes. The trip around Pumpkin Lane includes a stop at the pumpkin patch, where you can pick out the perfect pumpkins. Pumpkins are an additional fee, with prices starting at just $1.50. Also: baby’s first pumpkin is free!
Also included in the admission price is a hay bale maze for children, pumpkin flume game, yard games, barn animals, and photo opportunities. Pomeroy Farm’s historic log house will also be open for tours on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 12 to 4 p.m. New this year are different local food vendors every weekend, offering a variety of festive snacks and seasonal favorites (of COURSE there will be pumpkin pie!).
