Join us for the PEANUTS™  The Great Pumpkin Patch Express!!  It’s not just for the little ones! See all the activities we have for kids of all ages.

“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” is a 1966 American prime time animated television special based on the comic strip Peanuts™ by Charles M. Schulz. Celebrate 50 years of this classic tale! Ride our train to the Pumpkin Patch to meet Charlie Brown and Snoopy and bring home the perfect pumpkin.

During the 1/2 hour train ride to the Pumpkin Patch, children will each receive a trick-or-treat bag to get goodies at the Pumpkin Patch and there will be a special reading of the Schulz’s  “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”. At the Pumpkin Patch site you’ll have about 1 1/2 hours of fun for the whole family!
