Go crazy for fall with a trip to Downey’s Farm Market! Their family fun play area features giant jumping pillows, pirate ships, strong man competitions and many more exciting activities. Hop on a wagon and ride to the pumpkin patch during their annual Pumpkinfest, before heading to the on-site market. Savour a fresh treat from the bakery, or choose from a wide variety of hearty lunch fare, like Paninis, Scottish meat pies, sandwiches and salads.
Plan your day to include a stop at Spirit Tree Estate Cidery where visitors can enjoy a taste of the harvest with a family apple picking experience, as well as a cider tasting for the grown-up’s palate.
Take time to explore the nearby Terra Cotta Conservation Area. This local treasure is teaming with wildlife and fall colours. Enjoy the trails and experience Terra Cotta’s Fall Festival each weekend during the month of October – rain or shine. There will be park tours, food trucks, family activities, guided hikes and live entertainment; see website for details.
