If you happen to be looking for awesome autumn fun and activities; you need look no further than the Pocono Mountains!
I really think that I enjoy decorating for fall as much as I enjoy decorating for Christmas. I absolutely love the autumn colors and carving jack-o-lanterns out of nice big, fat, round pumpkins!
This weekend you will find me wandering around The Great Pocono Pumpkin Festival at Country Junction in Lehighton. This family oriented festival is a great way to enjoy a day of seasonal fun as well as pick up some fantastic items for your autumn decorating.
As you know, I am a big kid at heart and when it comes to the Halloween season, I probably always will be. Therefore, I will most definitely be visiting the Ghost Town at The Great Pocono Pumpkin Festival. Ghost Town admission is only $6 and will offer a spooktacular time of unlimited access to hayrides, the corn maze and much, much more! I'm sure that kids of all ages will get a thrill from the haunted house!
Those of us that don't want to wait until next summer to ride the midway carnival rides will be able to ride till our heart's content for a small additional fee. There will be plenty of kiddie rides for all of the little goblins to delight in. You will be able to find me riding the Ferris Wheel and the Scrambler. I may even take a trip down the giant slide!
After a pleasant afternoon of riding the rides and a visit to the Ghost Town, you will definitely want to do a little shopping for your fall decorations. Country Junction is the perfect place to get everything you could possibly think of to decorate every nook and cranny of your home. I know that I will be going home with a car full of autumn ornaments. Did I mention that pumpkins are only $3 each and baby pumpkins are only $1?
The Great Pocono Pumpkin Festival will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-6pm. The Ghost Town activities and hayrides will also be open from noon-5pm on Monday through Friday. The General Store and Pet Shop are open from 8am-7pm Mondays through Saturdays and from 9am-6pm on Sundays.
As always, have an awesome autumn weekend in the Pocono Mountains! Happy Hauntings, and I hope to see you at Country Junction and The Great Pocono Pumpkin Festival!
