As Autumn fills the air, thoughts of Thanksgiving gatherings, richly-colored fall wreaths and family time come to mind. Who can consider Autumn without thinking of pumpkins? What better way to spend some quality family time this fall than to head out to Uesugi Farms for some pumpkin-lovin’ fun?
Bring the whole family out on Saturday, October 13, 2018, for Uesugi Farms’ 28th Annual Pumpkin Weigh-off. Pumpkin purveyors vie for more than $25,000 in prize money. Contestants check in from 9-11 a.m. and weighing begins at 1 p.m. with awards immediately following.
If you’d like to strike a pose with the champion pumpkin, it and other select pumpkins will be available for photo opportunities through the month of October. Weekend parking costs just $7. Other attractions you can find at Uesugi Farms include The Cow Train, Pumpkin Pyramid and Pony Rides, in addition to entertainment from Blue Dog Band, Fred McCarty & Company and others.
It’s easy to get busy at this time of year. The kids are back to school and Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the bend. Take time to make a cherished memory with your family because you only get this day once in a lifetime.
