Arbuckle Pumpkin Festival this Saturday, Pumpkin Village to follow

The coming of fall means pumpkin lattes, roasted corn, candy bowls, brisk nights and the perennial family fun activity of Pumpkin picking.

On Saturday, Oct. 1, the Arbuckle Revitalization Committee will host its annual Pumpkin Festival from 10 AM to 3 PM. Featuring a variety of colorful pumpkins, vendors, children’s activities, and a barbecue lunch. The Arbuckle Pumpkin Festival is located in downtown arbuckle in the LaVanche Hursch Community Park.

Or if you are still looking for something with a little more entertainment and fun for the whole family, head on out to the Pumpkin Village at the Colusa County Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 21-22 and Oct. 28-29.

Now in its third year, the Colusa County Pumpkin Village boasts a large pumpkin patch, pony rides, a hay maze, petting zoo, carnival rides, a tomato train, the infamous hay pyramid, and much more.

“Many of the activities are FREE,” said Colusa County Fair CEO, Jonathan Howard. “We want a place where families can have a good time and not worry about having to spend a lot of money.”

Pumpkin Village charges no entry or parking fees.

Although much of the fun is free, several activities require tickets like a traditional carnival, and pumpkins are $5 each.

“We have wristbands on sale for those who want to have an unlimited amount of fun,” said Howard.

The wristbands are $25, if purchased before Oct. 20,, and are good for all rides and activities that require tickets.

“When you purchase a wristband, you’ll also receive a free pumpkin,” said Howard.

Howard said that Pumpkin Village aims to be as budget friendly as possible and is even offering Buy-One-Get-One specials each Sunday of the event.

“From 10 AM to Noon on Oct. 22 we will have BOGO wristbands at $30, and on Oct. 29 we will have a special BOGO pumpkin deal all day,” said Howard.
