Welcome to MacDonald’s Ranch Annual Pumpkin Festival!
Once again we will have our horse or mule drawn hayrides out to the Pumpkin Patch, where you can pick from a variety of different sized pumpkins to take home and carve or decorate! Pony rides will be available to all of the kids after a parent or guardian has completed our liability form (Please tip the person that leads your child’s pony). Helmets are also available and are highly recommended for all children.
Come see all the old and new critters in the petting zoo! Our miniature donkeys Pete and Repeat will be happy to see everyone, as well as our miniature ponies! We have some new bunnies, chickens, ducks, and peacocks in the menagerie also. Our goats and sheep keep all of the other animals on their feet! They would all love for everyone to come out and play with them!
Many games will be on hand for everyone to enjoy! From our classics: steer head roping, horse shoe pits, gem mine and cowboy golf to our large hay maze!
Additional activities such as: a bounce house, small train, carnival rides, a face painter, and sand creations will be available at additional costs. And keep your eyes open for music and dance performances throughout the month!
