Great Pumpkin Harvest at the Orange County Great Park

you might have already read about the Great Pumpkin Harvest on my awesome list of Orange County Halloween events, but as just a reminder…it is this Saturday, October 20, 2012.  it will be a fun event great for the entire family.

kids can pick a free pumpkin* right out of the Great Park Pumpkin Patch, have a master carver show you how to create a work of art at the pumpkin carving demos, a hay maze, carnival-style games, a scarecrows in the park contest, train rides, petting zoo, cooking demos, scavenger hunt and a monster mash puppet show.  * Free pumpkins are for children 12 and under, while supplies last 

also, make sure to visit the OC Family booth.  lots of fun will be happening there.  did i ever mention that i write a camping blog over at OC Family?
