Pumpkin Picking and Activities


Halloween is almost upon us and that means most are getting set to go out and select some pumpkins for the family to carve or paint. Whatever tradition you have we wanted to share a couple locations around the area that may be fun for the whole family to go and enjoy a nice fall day.

The first is Rader Family Farm in Normal, IL. The have events for every age from pumpkin patch picking, corn mazes, tractor rides, and more. Hours are: Monday – Friday: 9am – 6pm and Weekends: 10am – 6pm.

The second is Zaiser Pumpkin Farm in Washington, IL. Zaiser is going to be a great place to go if your looking at just getting your jack-o-lanterns. They have a road side stand setup with an amazing selection for you and the family to choose from.

And remember, pumpkins have a way of choosing us. What one person rejects as ugly, too tall, too short, or too fat; the next person will exclaim and rejoice announcing their beautiful find. Have fun and stop on into Cornerstone Family Restaurant in Eureka, IL for breakfast, lunch, or dinner afterwards!
