Pumpkins, Pumpkins and MORE pumpkins.
We have already written a post about Pumpkin Patches around Kentucky, you can check it out here. However, there is always so much more that you can say about pumpkin picking this time of year.
Did you know that this weekend in Elizabethtown, the Pumpkin Wagon is doing their Great Pumpkin Fest from 6 -10 pm? Admission is free and there is a costume contest, marshmallow roasting and flashlight corn mazes to name a few things. Of course pumpkins will be available for purchase!
Also in Elizabethtown, Hinton’s Orchard is doing their Halloween Party on October 25th starting at 9 am. Admission is $5.00 and you get to trick or treat, take part in the great pumpkin hunt (kids only please) play in the farmlands play area or explore the corn mazes.
Check out Elizabethtown Family’s website here for more on their area fall events.
You could keep going down 65 and hit Bowling Green.
On October 25th the National Corvette Museum is having their trunk or treat from 10 am – Noon with a costume contest starting at 11 am. Carnival games are .25 per game and you get to trunk or treat out of collector cars.

Go check out Neltner’s Farm and Greenhouses and pick a pumpkin, visit the petting zoo or listen to the live music. Admission is $5 but it includes a hay ride to the pumpkin patch and the corn maze.
You could also head over to Country Pumpkins, and take a ride on their Cotton Wagon. There is a 5,000 lb bale of cotton to play in! When you head to the pumpkin patch the pumpkins are still on the vine, ready for you to cut off! Admission is free but pumpkins are $8.
