Rest of the Story:
One of the greatest fall festivities in any town is going to a pumpkin patch and Prescott is no different!
Though we might be a bit biased, we are in love with our very own pumpkin festival held at Mortimer Farms every year. This year the festival is being held from September 28th to October 28th every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Rain or shine, the pumpkin festival is open! Hours are Friday from noon to 9PM, Saturday from 9AM to 9PM, and Sunday from 9AM to 6PM. People travel from all over to come and enjoy our little Pumpkin Festival that’s packed with fun for the whole family.
The centerpiece of this festival is the corn maze which is an astounding fifteen acres! The corn maze this year pays tribute to the American Flag and those who protect, and serve America. It is a labyrinth of twist and turns, and dead-ends, and will be a fun challenge for kids of all ages.
As for other activities, they have something that will fit everyone’s interests! There are hay rides that tour the farm with farmer Buzz who is a plethora of stories and history about the area. Wild shows for the thrill seeking enthusiast include illusionists, amazing trained animals, fire dancers who perform every Friday and Saturday, contortionists, aerial shows, magic shows, mini dog races, circus performers, pig races, Karaoke, and more. There’s also Gem mining, zip lines, tractor tire swings, pumpkin jump, craft vendors, an obstacle course, and that’s just to name a very few. Farm animals also adorn this pumpkin patch from chickens to goats, sheep, and Pedro the donkey. The list is endless of the fun activities and interesting things there are to see and do at Mortimer farms.
Along with activities, there is also plenty of food to choose from. There’s your traditional farm table food, a deli, a bakery, Fry Bread, BBQ, Philly cheese steaks, a snack vendor, kettle corn, dip n dots, nachos, and more! Not only that, but those looking to attend one of the barn dances occurring on Friday night can now also enjoy dinner for an extra ten dollars. Friday night includes the barn dance, dinner at the barn, magic at night, and fire dancers, making it an ideal and fun date night.
