Harvest Festivals

The chill in the air and the changing of the leaves mean fall has arrived across Nevada. And with the season comes plenty of fun-filled festivities. Several farms across the state hold harvest festivals in October, and many include pumpkin patches and corn mazes to test your skills. Unlike Linus and Charlie Brown who spent a chilly night waiting for the Great Pumpkin to arrive, you don’t have to go to such extremes to enjoy a great pumpkin patch.

Andelin Family Farm in Sparks holds an annual fall festival with activities and fun for all ages. New this year, Monday Night Family Night with a corn maze treasure hunt and glow paintball. Festival-goers can enjoy a corn maze, pumpkin patch, animal rides and more. The festival runs daily through October. For more information, visit their website www.andelinfamilyfarm.com .

The pumpkin patch at Corley Ranch in Gardnerville is open seven days a week, but things get more fun on the weekends with activities such as a hay slide, a straw maze just for kids, mini golf, pig races and a corn maze. There’s also a giant sling shot just for apples! More information at  www.corleyranch.com
