A Day of Fun

0

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.

Hank’s Pumpkintown

Hank’s Pumpkintown, on the Southampton/Water Mill border, has been a family favorite and “must do” once it opens in mid-September. Taken from their website, here are just some of the things to look forward to: “Pumpkin Picking, Apple Picking, Corn Mazes, Wagon Rides, Tractor Train Rides, Giant Slides, Games, Playgrounds and more. The New Market has Freshly Baked Pies, Cookies, Cup Cakes, Candy Apples, Cider Donuts and much more. Be sure to visit the Corn Shack for the best Roasted Corn too.” We’ve done it all and can vouch for a fun time and delicious pies and produce, the roasted corn being a family favorite (grab extra napkins). I’ll be reporting first hand this Saturday morning starting at 9:30am. Come join us! For more information, visit their website: Hank’s Pumpkintown
