It’s Pro-D fun at the farm

Davison Orchards wraps up the season with their annual Pumpkin Festival all weekend long

Peyton Makcrow enjoys the Pumpkin Festival at Davison Orchards.

Davison Orchards is extending their Pumpkin Festival to include today’s Professional Development Day in schools across the valley.

“We know there will be lots of kids off school this Friday, and parents looking for good ways to burn that hyper, Halloween-is-almost-here energy,” said marketing director Tamra Davison. “We are offering many of our weekend activities all day Friday to offer some family-friendly ways to celebrate fall.”

The Johnny Popper Train will be taking kids of all ages to the pumpkin patch to pick their own pumpkin right from the field from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Rachel Davison will be hosting a fall story time at 11 a.m. about Spookley, the square pumpkin who teaches us it’s OK to be different.

Story time will be followed by a pumpkin carving station from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Transform your pumpkin into a Jack-O-Lantern and leave the mess on the farm (included with $4 Kids Corral admission, must use a Davison Pumpkin).  Also in the Kids Corral, there is pumpkin bowling and a pumpkin toss on top of the usual giant sandbox, treehouse, straw maze, mini golf and more.

For the even younger crowd, the Davisons have set up a “Baby Photo Op Station” with a hollowed out pumpkin to photograph your little one in. Bring your baby and your camera.

“Adults might appreciate all the pumpkin goodies available now at the farm including pumpkin fudge, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie from the bakery and pumpkin steamers and pumpkin soup in the café.

“There is something for all ages at Davison Orchards, a great destination to make the most of the Pro-D Day and the last weekend in October.”

Davison Orchards is open everyday until Oct 31. See www.davisonorchards.ca for more information.
