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 straw maze, games, BBQ and more.

Pumpkins on Pikes takes place on two Saturdays: October 19  and October 26, from 2 to 10 pm.

The festivities start in the afternoon with great food, music and pumpkin carving. Everyone will get the chance to display their Jack-O-Lantern on a pike in the corn field. When the sun goes down the pumpkins are lit. It is a truly heart warming feeling looking over the glowing corn field to see the individual creations of all who attend. Free pumpkins for carving will be provided with admission. Bring your pumpkin carving tools, blankets and coats to stay warm after dark, and a sheet to cover hay bales for seating. 

The events features live music by the Vivants. You can purchase a dinner for $15 (meat and vegetarian options) or a hot dog for $10 and $5 beer and wine at the event.

Admission is $25 and includes a carving pumpkin. Children 6 and under are admitted free. If you're interested in going, get your tickets soon—this event often sells out early.
