This October, get out of Indianapolis for a bit and head to Greenwood, Indiana for your fix of fall fun. The Fall Harvest Festival at Waterman’s Farm Market has everything you need for a cozy Autumn adventure. Be sure to bring along your Indianapolis kids–this is a great event the whole family can enjoy.
The festival kicked off September 26th, and it runs through October 31st. Weekday admission is only $4 per person, and $5 on Saturday and Sunday. Children two and under get in for free every day. The admission price includes plenty of outdoor activities, including a farm tour hayride that concluded in the pumpkin patch, where you can pick out your very own pumpkin to take home.
In addition, you can walk through the farm’s two elaborate corn mazes, and visit the farm’s very own furry friends. You and your kids can jump in the giant piles of leaves, join in on the tricycle trail, and enjoy the giant inflatable bounce house. Saturdays and Sundays include live entertainment, featuring an impressive array of bands and the farm’s friendly clown. Pony rides are also available for $3.
Of course, no fall festival is complete without a yummy selection of Autumn fare to get you in the holiday spirit. On the weekends, you can enjoy typical festival food such as caramel apples, popcorn, warm cider and hot chocolate, and other tasty treats.
If you’re planning a trip to Waterman’s Farm Market and haven’t settled on the day, why not make it this Saturday, October 17. Not only can you take advantage of all the fun activities at the Fall Harvest Festival, but you can participate in the annual Old-Fashioned Barn Dance. Beginning at 6:00 p.m., the whole family can enjoy festival music and traditional dancing. Be sure to bundle up for this event–the evening draws to a close with a chilly group hayride in the moonlight.
