Get Your Tickets Now for Pumpkins on Pikes at Tara Firma Farms
In addition to producing healthy and sustainable local food, Petaluma's Tara Firma Farms also puts on fantastic family-friendly events throughout the year. This fall, their annual Pumpkins on Pikes event continues this tradition. Come on out to the farm for Halloween fun with pumpkin carving, live music, dancing, a corn maze, BBQ and more.
Pumpkins on Pikes takes place on two Saturdays, October 20 and October 27, from 2 to 10 pm. Bring your pumpkin carving tools, blankets and coats to stay warm after dark, a sheet to cover hay bales for seating, and favorite treat for the dessert potluck. Free pumpkins for carving will be provided with admission. The carved pumpkins are placed on pikes out in the cornfield, and when the sun goes down, the pumpkins are lit. It's an amazing spectacle!
The October 20 event features live music by the Vivants and on October 27, the High Water Line performs. A BBQ dinner will be available for purchase $10 a plate at the event; vegetarian options available.
Admission is $20. Children 6 and under are admitted free. If you're interested in going, get your tickets soon—this event often sells out early.
