Pumpkinpalooza at Zoomar’s Petting Zoo

Pumpkinpalooza at Zoomar's Petting Zoo

One of our favorite places to spend a cool Fall afternoon is at Zoomar’s Petting Zoo. Zoomar’s (originally Jones’ Mini Farm) was the first place where my first born son and I had our first outing together. Over the past eleven years as a mother, my children and I, have shared many lifelong memories together at this historic farm. Now that Halloween is quickly approaching, we spent the afternoon at their pumpkinpalooza celebration.

Pumpkinpalooza is happening at Zoomar’s Petting Zoo throughout the month of October with loads of family fun. When we first arrived at the farm, the kids ran into the petting zoo to hang with their favorite guinea pigs and chickens. Then it was off to feed the goats!

After spending time with all of the animals, we went on the train ride, climbed in the giant corn pit, and ran around the mini ghost town. Children can decorate pumpkins, make crafts, and even purchase that perfect pumpkin to bring home for Halloween night.
