Children can play field games, carve pumpkins, run through the hay bale maze, build a scarecrow, enter a pie-eating contest, or go on a hay ride with the family.

The day will end with a Slow Food potluck dinner. People should bring a dish for six, made with local ingredients, along with the recipe to share. Dancing will follow from 7 to 10 pm with music by the Blue Strangers.
