Pumpkins, roasted corn, candied apples, pies and popcorn were just some of the treats at Hank’s Pumpkintown today. And what a gorgeous day it is!
New this year is a large pavilion where they serve freshly made donuts (pumpkin spice or apple cider flavored), freshly popped corn, hand dipped candied apples and more. They also served beverages. You can buy various kinds of apples or pick your own. There were pumpkins of all sizes and gourds of all shapes and colors. They offered wheelbarrows to load all your goodies in.
There’s entertainment for kids of all ages. There was a playground filled with games and slides and small bicycle races around a track. The kids enjoyed trying to find their way out of the corn maze. The playground requires children under the age of 12 to be accompanied by an adult, and tickets are $12 per person (including the accompanying adult). Outside the playground they offer wooden structures of various shapes for the kids to climb on. There was also face painting.
The roasted corn was wonderful, sweet and juicy. My favorite!
We arrived on the early side, around 10 o’clock, and there were several dozen cars there already. So, be prepared to walk. We stayed until around 2 o’clock, just as it really started to get busy. It was a fun day overall. I recommend going at least once. It’s free to enter.
