Foods, Drinks, Crafts…and Lots of Fall-Like Things to Fill Your Day.
Fresh from the farm…and from one of finest farms around..the Sperdute Farm family of New Castle will be here offering a full array of products made from their very own produce. In season, the family raises an abundance of sweet corn, tomatoes and other vegetables including a wide variety of peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins, watermelons, cantaloupes, butternut and acorn squash, Indian corn and gourds.
The Sperdute pumpkin patch spans 25 acres and all of the decorative pumpkins, corn stalks and gourds at the festival were supplied by them…you’ll have the opportunity to buy pie pumpkins, along with a vibrant mix of gourds, jars of tasty jams and spreads spicy, savory and seasonal. This is one farmer’s market you won’t want to miss.
A Pumpkin Patch Aplenty
Other traditional foods and drinks that come with October will complete our banquet of tasty treats and enticing eats. You’ll discover an eclectic row of craft vendors and product makers, many from areas right here in our hometown…proud entrepreneurs and talented artisans who add tons of color and atmosphere to the festivities.
Kool Kids Stuff Too!
We didn’t forget the kids…family fun is what we’re all about and while we’re sure the little ones will be overwhelmed at seeing what will likely be their first giant pumpkin ever, we’ve got some specific activities to satisfy their size as well…
- KIDS “PEDAL TRACTOR PULL”…for tykes 3-to 8 years-old, the fun is endless the fascination on your child’s face priceless. Watch as each child pedals a replica farm tractor while dragging a weighted sled behind them. Dragging creates friction, so the farther one pedals, the harder it gets…but the fun is in the experience…and the small prize each child receives for their effort
- COSTUME PARADE…details about this activity are in the works, in advance of Halloween, we hope to stage a cute and colorful costume parade for tots and slightly older kids…with plenty of candy handed out and awards for best costumes
- Pumpkin Playland…a dedicated area of rides, games and activities to keep the “little ones” playfully entertained
