Seasonal favorites are around every corner—think hot, fresh apple cider donuts, craft beer, s’mores for roasting over fire pits and a wide variety of pumpkins in all colors, shapes and sizes. Children are filled with delight at the sight of festival rides, bounce houses and a petting zoo.

Lake Catherine Farms: Fall Maze & Pumpkin Patch
While blueberries usually the name of the game here, pumpkins and corn mazes take over come fall. They have a Scavenger Hunt Maze for families and super-scary haunted mazes for older kids and adults. They also offer free hayrides, tractor train rides and photo opportunities with vintage tractors and automobiles. For young farmers, the “hayground” and corn box are back, as well as assorted yard games for our more competitive guests.
