The Original Pumpkin Festival

Yeah, it’s festival season. While not quite the Central Oregon pumpkin patch, the Original Pumpkin Festival is coming up on Saturday, October 21st, from 10am until 4pm. Here’s the blurb from KTVZ:

Come out to Tillicum Ranch and pick out your perfect pumpkin, go on a hayride or pony ride, pet the farm animals, enjoy the treats and live entertainment, visit the spooky barn, take home seasonal crafts, search the ranch for treasures in the scavenger hunt, and participate in the many other fun activities. This event is designed specifically for families with young children. High Desert Museum brings out their creepy creatures and Bend Science Station launches rocket ghosts. This Pumpkin Festival is no sleepy hollow.
$9 for an all day pass (includes pumpkin) or .50 cents per activity tickets.

Directions: 18144 Couch Market Road. Take Hwy 20 six miles west toward Sisters, turn left on Couch Market Road and follow the orange signs.

The High Desert Museum angle sounds cool; they’ll probably have reptiles on hand for the "creepy creatures."
