3 Harvest Festivals and a Truck (What’s on this Weekend)

This weekend will be full of fall!  From Harvest Celebrations and corn mazes to pumpkin patches and trucks, there’s a little bit of Autumn for everyone.

Fall Pumpkin Festival @ Remlinger Farms

The mother of all kid-friendly farms, Remlinger, is kicking off its Fall Pumpkin Festival, running now through the last weekend in October.  If you’ve already checked off the pony rides, steam train, farm animals and mini carnival rides, head on over (hayride-style) to the U-Pick Pumpkin Field and pick your perfect pumpkin (say that fast 5 times).  The always-lovely farm market will be featuring fall delights like caramel apples, pies, and turnovers, so come hungry!

 September 29-October 28
$13 entry fee (under 1 free)

Fall Harvest Celebration & Sunflower Field Maze @ Dr. Maze’s Farmyard

Where can you find a Singing Chicken Show, Pumpkin Checkers, hayrides and Rubber Duck Races all in one place?  Dr. Maze’s Farmyard, of course!  Along with continuing the Fall Harvest Celebration, this weekend marks the opening of the Farm’s Rooster in the Sunflowers Field Maze.  Be sure to visit the farm animals and taste Dr. Maze’s famous fresh kettle corn.

Fall Harvest Celebration Festival @ Magnuson Park

Take part in an orchard maze and scavenger hunt, ride kid-sized tractors and get up-close and personal with farm animals!  Kids from the Magnuson Nature Program will be hosting garden and P-patch tours, and there will be live music from Harmonica Pocket and the Smalltime String Band.  Other activities include a pumpkin walk, harvest parade and scarecrow-making.  Need I say more?

Magnuson Park Children’s Garden
Saturday, September 29 from 11:30a-2:30p
Free (for scarecrow-making, bring old clothes plus $5 for straw and wood)

Kids love hay stacks.

Touch-a-Truck @ Northgate Mall

This very popular event is making its way to Northgate Mall.  Kids get a hands-on opportunity to “touch a truck” or, more precisely, climb aboard, sit in and explore dozens of vehicles from ice cream trucks to semi trucks.  Field personnel are there to explain the equipment and discuss their careers so that the little folk of Seattle can gain a bigger and better understanding of those who serve and protect our city.  Plus, it’s pretty darn fun to honk the horns.

    • I love it too! We are growing pumpkins in our garden but we will still probably end up bringing at least 2 or 3 home from a pumpkin patch! I love your blog! And that’s cool that you are a Travel Mamas contributor! I’m doing a guest post for Travel Mamas this month! Excited!
