Pack the kids in the car and set your GPS for Pumpkinland

October 2019

You may not know a scarecrow, but this is the season to find them in the fields and garden areas of Linvilla Orchards. So bring your little monkeys of all ages to see mountains of pumpkins (100 tons of them!), plus giant storybook characters, witches and more. And everybody needs to take one of the daily hayrides to the Witches House for treats and tales!

Pumpkinland is one of the state’s most popular Halloween haunts for families. There’s a huge selection of straw bales, corn shocks, toys and other fall decorations, plus live music every weekend, giant mazes, pony rides, and fabulous Halloween face painting.

The Farmer’s Market is a mecca for fresh produce and locally-made jams, jellies, and sauces. Visitors can follow their noses to the fresh-made bread, cake, and pie display, and caramel apples are also high on the list of incredible edibles showcased at this family farm.

Join CAC in a Fall Harvest Celebration of Local Art, Music, Food & Beer!

When the leaves begin to change color it’s time to enjoy Delco’s unique tastes of autumn…from crisp just-picked apples, to pumpkin pies made from the locally grown squash, to pizza made with Delco tomatoes and peppers, to beer and ciders brewed in many different neighborhoods.

Located in the heart of America’s Garden Capital (36 Gardens within 30 Miles), you can bet that spring planting and fall harvest are hugely popular seasons in Delco. So come out and spend a relaxing fall afternoon, hosted by The Community Arts Center of Wallingford on Saturday October 19th.
