From bird watching to fishing to horseback riding and hiking, Gibson Ranch Park in nearby Elverta, Ca. has been the setting for many Sacramento-area family activities and events over the years. The 325-acre country park has now added “pumpkin farm” to its repertoire. Each Saturday and Sunday beginning Sept. 30 through Oct. 29, 2017, Gibson Ranch will welcome children of all ages through its gates for a day of fall fun. Here’s what you can expect at the new Gibson Ranch Pumpkin Festival:
Activities will include Games, pony rides, petting zoo, bounce houses, face painting, kiddie train, hay rides, straw bale maze, costume contest, character meet and greet and a pumpkin patch. Jugglers, magicians and balloon twisters will entertain the kiddos while the parents can shop the farmer’s market and peddler’s fair for holiday gifts.
WHEN: Weekends, Sept. 30 – Oct. 29, 2017
ADMISSION: Free admission, parking $5, activity tickets $1 per ticket
