Blue Ridge Pumpkins offers fall fun from now to Halloween

September 21, 2013

Blue Ridge Pumpkins LLC is back in Carroll County for a second year and will offer full weekends of family fun during the months of September and October.

A family-owned and operated Pumpkin Patch nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Fancy Gap at 813 Chantilly Drive, Blue Ridge Pumpkins LLC opened for the fall season Sept. 14 and will be open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays and from 1-6 p.m. on Sundays.

Families can come to pick out their own pumpkin for the fall, enjoy a hay ride through a pumpkin patch, have a picture made by a Fall Scene, get lost in the brand new Corn Maze, take turns firing from a corn cannon, or have a snack or picnic on picnic tables next to the barn.

Pumpkins are available in every size, shape and color, offering families a fun-filled time to pick from the pumpkin patch. Pumpkins range in size from mini-pumpkins to extra large. New for this year are gorgeous white pumpkins.

The all-new corn maze is a two-acre field of corn with twists and turns, and sometimes coming to a dead end. Blue Ridge Pumpkin’s maze is designed to be challenging, but still allow visitors to exit at any time they wish.

Blue Ridge Pumpkins will also have a bouncy house this year. During the 2013 Pumpkin Fest at Blue Ridge Pumpkins, visitors can enjoy hayrides for $2, play corn hole and ring toss for free, get their face painted for $1, jump in the moon bounce house for $2, play on the hay slide or hay maze and corn pit free for small children. Fall photos are $6 for a print, or free to take your own pictures. Pumpkins, bails of hay, corn stalks, squash, mums and gourds range in cost from $1-$20. There will also be arts and crafts vendors and free animal exhibits and different special attractions throughout each weekend. Concessions range from $1-$3, the corn maze is $5, and you can take two shots with the corn cannon for $1.

Blue Ridge Pumpkins will be open each weekend through September and October, ending with the Oct. 26-27 weekend.
