Kick off your fall season with Downey’s Farm Market! Celebrating 25 years of pure family fun, Downey’s Family Fun Play Area features giant jumping pillows, wagon rides, and many more exciting activities. Hop on a wagon and ride to the pumpkin patch, or try your hand at the 8-acre corn maze before heading to the farm market. Savour a fresh treat from the bakery, or choose from a wide variety of fall lunch fare, like Scottish meat pies, sandwiches and salads. Downey’s Farm is a bustle of fall activity especially during their annual Pumpkinfest, which takes place every fall. Be sure to make time to explore the nearby Terra Cotta Conservation Area. This local treasure is teeming with wildlife and fall colours. Enjoy the trails and don’t miss Terra Cotta’s annual Fall Festival: A Celebration of Harvest & Fall Colours during the month of October. There will be park tours and activities, guided hikes and live entertainment; visit their website for all the details!
