28th Annual Fall Mums and Pumpkin Festival / Lincoln Ridge Farm / 12 - 6 PM

Join in for great family fun this fall at Lincoln Ridge Farms - a 5th generation farm.  Take a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch to pick the perfect pumpkin - they grow the neatest pumpkins!  Challenge your friends to a "race to the end" on our 'Hootmobile' trailway.  Adventure through our Great Autumn Adventure barn - you will find it "ghost" friendly!  Climb Straw Mountain and 'zip' back down on our double zip-line - you can't just do this once!  Pan for gold and gemstones at the mining camp and visit the barnyard friends along the way.  See how high you can bounce on the Giant Jumping Pillow - kids favorite!  You won't get lost in their corn maze, but it might leave you 'clue-less'!  See how high your pumpkins can fly at the Punkin Chunkin station. Gather around a campfire to roast a hot dog and sip a cup of the farm's 'special recipe' spiced cider!  So, call your family and friends, plan to stay for the day.  Lincoln Ridge Farm is the perfect place for festive fall fun, not to mention a great nature escape,  the fall color is glorious!  For more info, visit them on the web at   www.lincolncandleco.com for group rates and coupons or call them at 419.749.4224.   Admission $7.50 (3 and under free) includes everything but pumpkins and food.  The farm is located at 6237 Lincoln Highway, Convoy, Ohio
