Pumpkin Festival

Our goal at Gibson Ranch Park is to create a safe, fun, and affordable atmosphere for local families. To add more fun to the ranch, we host a Pumpkin Festival during October. We collaborate with local vendors to provide a variety of entertainment and education.

Booking Field trips

During October local schools are invited to tour our 4-acre pumpkin patch learning about the lifecycle of the pumpkin, seed planting, growth cycle, and harvesting. We offer a variety of options including age-based learning, hay rides, face painting, and pumpkins.

Weekends are for FUN

On the weekends, the Pumpkin Festival celebrates fall with food, craft vendors, entertainment, and attractions. At our first annual Pumpkin Festival, we offered bounce houses, slides, obstacle courses, pony rides, petting zoo, horse-drawn wagon rides, kiddie train, rock wall, Walk on Water, Bungee Jump and more. Visitors enjoyed magic by a roaming magician, a juggling act, and even a meet and greet with favorite characters.

Plans for the Future

As we continue to create a bigger and better Pumpkin Festival, our attractions will adapt to the public’s’ interests. Our goals in 2018 include additional food, entertainment, and appeal.

Become a Vendor

We want to hear from you if you are an entertainer, food truck/business, or a craft vendor that would like to join the festivities! We would love to work with local schools, dance studios, martial arts, gymnastics companies, magicians, jugglers, stilt walkers, etc. to provide entertainment at the Pumpkin Festival; please fill out a vendor application.
