Weekends in October & Columbus Day
FAMILY FUN WITH PUMPKIN WEEKENDS
AURORA–Every fall, just about the time Mother Nature starts to change her outfit, historical Blackberry Farm and its natural beauty plays host to Pumpkin Weekends – a popular, monthlong event for families to celebrate the season and add memories to the digital scrapbook.
Pumpkin Weekends are held every Saturday and Sunday in October, along with Columbus Day, at Blackberry – the Fox Valley Park District’s living history museum, located at 100 S. Barnes Rd. in Aurora.
Guests can roam the 53-year-old park, festively decorated in the spirit of pumpkin season, and enjoy unlimited rides on the carousel, hay wagon, ponies, paddle boats and replica steam-engine train. A picnic area will have pumpkins for purchase and an assortment of decorating materials will be provided.
