2021 Pet of the Year Contest

Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival

Nature Discovery Center

Pick the perfect pumpkin from the patch at the Nature Discovery Center. This year, there will be heirloom varieties, too.

Join Nature Discovery Center for its annual Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival in Russ Pitman Park. There will be plenty of pumpkins, fun festival games, crafts and activities, scrumptious foods, family photo ops, meet the animals, and more! Outside exhibitors and vendors will also be on hand with everything from live animals and biofacts to examine to decorated pumpkin centerpieces, lemonade, and goat milk ice pops for sale.

This year, there will be more than 12,000 pounds of pumpkins this year, including heirloom varieties! Pumpkins are only for sale during the fall festival weekend, Oct. 16-17.

New this year: There will be no-carve pumpkin decorating kits you can purchase to decorate your pumpkins at home.

VIP Early Admission will include the opportunity to arrive early to grab the best parking spot, get your professional family portrait, and get first choice of pumpkins. This ticketed, limited-capacity event will also feature light bites and an exclusive animal encounter. Stay tuned for more details.
