More than just a pumpkin patch, the Tolay Fall Festival is a seasonal celebration of the beauty and history of this special park. Fall Festival activities are low-key, hands-on and educational by design.

  • Take a hayride to a pumpkin patch and find the perfect Halloween pumpkin
  • Enjoy Alaguali cultural activities
  • Try farm activities like wool-carding and candle-dipping
  • Enter the World-Record Pumpkin-Seed Spitting Contest
  • Join hands-on demonstrations in archery, astronomy and nature photography
  • Compete in gunnysack races. Find your way through a straw maze. Pet barnyard animals
  • Sample food and desserts from local vendors or bring a picnic
