I am so excited. I missed it last year because I didn’t know about it. I was thinking about volunteering want to take my son to enjoy the fun; I can’t wait to bring him and some family to the Harvest Festival! I have been looking up all of the different pumpkin patches… looks like I am done with my search :)
