For the second year in a row, South Florida families will get to experience the excitement around the change of seasons at the Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch Festival taking place Oct. 5 and 6 at Peacock Park.
Welcome the arrival of fall the first weekend of October at this one-of-a kind family festival set along picturesque Biscayne Bay from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.
The Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch Festival will feature a variety of fun activities for the whole family, including a true pumpkin patch in the center of all the action with more than 5,000 pumpkins from which to pick. Prices for pumpkins range from $1 to $15, depending on size.
Included in the entrance fee ($10 for adults and $15 for kids 12 and under), are unlimited kids carnival rides, the kids hay maze, a dress-your-own scarecrow village, corn stalk maze, hay ride, and on-going shows and activities on our main stage.
Adults will be thrilled with all the activities planned, including the opportunity to decorate your pumpkins right on-site ($5 per pumpkin), as well as the Pumpkin Food Court offering savory and sweet pumpkin delights such as pumpkin chili, pumpkin fritters, pumpkin ice cream, and delicious fair food, too. Plus, this year adults can enjoy a “cold one” in the Pumpkin Beer Garden.
“We are absolutely thrilled to bring this one-of-a-kind event to the community,” said Vanessa Goodis, Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch event director and founder. “As a South Florida native, I never got to enjoy the seasons as a child. This event is the only place that gives families the opportunity to create long-lasting and special ‘wonderfall’ memories.”
And don’t worry about bringing a camera. They will have a professional photography station set up at the Pumpkin Patch to capture memories of your fun-filled day with the entire family.
