Halloween Harvest Festival

Halloween Harvest Festival


Taking place every year at Pierce College in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Woodland Hills, the Halloween Harvest Festival (www.halloweenharvestfestival) features farm grown pumpkins and an array of Halloween-related activities for kids of all ages. Put together by the college, the festival opens at the end of September and runs through Halloween night, open every day of the week, from 10am till 10pm Sunday through Thursday and from 10am till 12am Friday and Saturday.

Visit the Holiday Hills Farms stage show where you can see Spookley the Square Pumpkin in a live stage show and have a chance to harvest your own pumpkin. If you are the adventurous type, try to find your way through the Adventure Corn Maze and if you’re really brave, enter the Factory of Nightmares Haunted House or take a tour of the Creatures of the Corn Haunted Trail, which both come to life after dark at the FrightFair Scream Park (www.frightfair.com). You can buy tickets online or at the door for the FrightFair attractions, each of which runs about $12. Tickets for the daytime festival are $4 each and a trip through the corn maze will set you back $10 if you’re a grown-up and $8 for the kids. Multi-day passes are also available and include the corn maze, activity tickets and the hay ride.

Other activities include a giant slide, jumpers, a petting zoo, train rides, a carousel, pony rides, bumper boats, a bungee, a day trip through the haunted house and gemstone mining. Each attraction requires a certain number of tickets, which can be purchased in singles, and in six and twelve packs. There’s plenty of things to do and see and a trip to the Halloween Harvest Festival will take your pumpkin picking adventure to a whole new level and really help you celebrate the fun of the fall holiday.
