Old MacDonald’s has a pumpkin patch
October 11, 2013 by Mark
Old MacDonald’s Farm is bringing one of the most anticipated parts of autumn back to Humble.
As of the start of October, the popular family fun destination has opened up its pumpkin patch to families seeking those perfect seasonal gourds. The patch is an annual addition to the farm’s list of attractions, and looks likely to be a popular destination once again this year. Every child is given a complimentary pumpkin to take home after their visit, and any pumpkins left over after October 31 will be given out free of charge.
In addition to the patch, Old MacDonald’s farm features a train ride through the farm, 12 petting zoo barns, pony rides, a swimming pool, and several other play areas. Admission is $9 per person, and access to all activities is included in that entry price, though feed for the petting zoo animals is $1 per bag. There is no limit on visit time, so families can arrive in the morning and stay until close. Visitors can bring in their own packed picnic lunches, or purchase drinks, food, and even souvenirs at the concession stand.
The farm has been a staple of community family fun since it opened back in 1991, but even a popular community destination can still benefit from good promotional tools, and a local print company can help in creating the best materials. For seasonal events like the pumpkin patch, a themed campaign of flyers, posters, brochures, and even banners can bring in both new business and old friends alike.
