20 Fredericksburg Parent and Family • October 2017 WRITTEN BY BRENDA SAPANGHILA family favorites Pickin' the Patch at BELVEDERE PLANTATION There's nothing better than a pumpkin patch in October! If you're looking to kick it up a notch this year, you should visit Belvedere Planta- tion's Harvest Festival, which runs from September 30 – October 3 1! Enjoy a hayride, corn maze, acres of games, play areas, autumnal food, animals to pet and plenty of pumpkins. There's even a fi reworks show! It's no surprise that they snagged the "Favorite Seasonal Activ- ity" spot in our 2017 Family Favorites contest! Here are a few things you won't want to miss! • The apple-cinnamon doughnuts are good. Get the apple-cinnamon donuts! • Watch the pig races! It's adorable, squeal-ly and gives you a chance to sit down. • Be sure to get a fancy pumpkin or two. The decorative ones (think: white, bumpy, blue, etc.) are near the plantation market. • Take your picture in front of the humongous scarecrow! • Roast some marshmallows around the campfi re. • If you have a young child, head for the Little Farmer's Corral. It's a play area with small John Deere trikes, a mini corn maze, giant sand boxes fi lled with digging toys and horse swings. As far as pumpkin picking itself goes, if you're feeling particularly bold, go for the "as many pumpkins as you can carry" option. You can potentially walk away with many jack-o'-lantern-size pumpkins, and your kids will get a kick out of your valiant attempt! Watch Belvedere's social media pages for upcoming events and deals.
