What a great activity for children during the Halloween season! Hats off to the men and women who worked hard on the pumpkins. I think this will be an annual event for my family!

First time going, but it will be a tradition going forward. Very well done and managed. Could use a few smaller groups in the time slots as it was pretty jammed, but wasn't awful.

There is a parking lot right by the house. The house is now closed for the Pumpkin Blaze through December.
