The Great Pumpkin Fest
One of the many benefits of looking for Minneapolis MN homes is the fact that there are so many things to do in the city and surrounding areas. In fact, many of the other neighboring cities are within easy commute of Minneapolis, giving home buyers the option of living within the metropolis or choosing a smaller but still active neighboring community. No matter where you live in the general area, make sure you don’t miss this year’s The Great Pumpkin Fest.
The Great Pumpkin Fest is a perfect example of one of the many events taking place throughout the year in the area surrounding Minneapolis. The annual festival, which runs Saturdays and Sundays, from September 21 through October 27, is located at One Valleyfair Drive, Shakopee, MN. Tickets start as low as $29.99 for this family friendly event that is ideal for fans of the Peanuts characters and anyone who loves to have a good time.
There are all sorts of not-so-scary Halloween activities for kids at The Great Pumpkin Fest, including rides, live entertainment and great fall activities, all with Snoopy and the Peanuts gang showing up throughout. Try Peppermint Patty’s Corn Maize, find all sorts of treats on Trick or Treat Street, and show off your costumes at the Great Pumpkin Parade.
The Great Pumpkin Fest ensures that there’s something for all ages to enjoy. ValleyFair also includes a bunch of other attractions. From kids rides and family rides up to thrill rides, which include a variety of roller coasters, there are rides for every level. There are also plenty of chances to splash around at Soak City and the other slides and attractions. Plus, in the evenings, when The Great Pumpkin Fest winds down the Halloween Haunt takes over.
So if you’re looking for Halloween fun to entertain the whole family, don’t miss The Great Pumpkin Fest at ValleyFair. Make a weekend of it and stay overnight to enjoy the Halloween Haunt, too, or head back to your Minneapolis MN homes and other homes in the nearby areas.
