The Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence will kick off its 27th annual Fall Festival this weekend — Saturday, Sept. 17 and Sunday, Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. — with a special Armed Forces Weekend in collaboration with Clarence Citizens for Veterans. The regular admission fee will be waived for active duty and retired military, veterans, police or fire department personnel who present proper identification to WNY Heroes representatives at the gate. They will also be permitted to bring one guest for free.
All attractions will be up and running on opening weekend, and additional entertainment will include Vinnie and Teddy, the ever-popular animatronic dinosaurs who will roam the corn maze both days from noon until 4 p.m. looking for their prey, and the Balloon Experts who will amaze with their incredible balloon characters and designs. There will also be live music in The Witches Brew indoor or outdoor bar (weather depending).
As with every year at this annual fall attraction tradition, there’s something for everyone, including amusement rides, hayrides, a corn maze, the pumpkins and mum patch, Zombie Train, apple cannons, shooting gallery, homemade baked goods, Halloween decorations and special events such as the World Pumpkin Weigh Off, Pumpkin Olympics, Pumpkin Drop, World Pumpkin Pie Eating Competition and so much more!
