Have you heard about the great pumpkin shortage that is sweeping the nation? Due to some crazy fungi out there, the pumpkin crop has been greatly limited this season. With numbers dwindling and prices rising, the task of finding a bona fide winner for your doorstep can prove to be quite a challenge. However, one stop at Cox Farms Fall Festival in Centerville and you’ll have no problem securing a future jack-o’-lantern. Featuring fun and festivities weekdays and weekends, Cox Farms is a great destination for parties and family outings. The 116-acre farm features hayrides, pumpkin picking, a farmer’s market, a musical cow milking show, mazes, slides, tunnels, rope swings and a whole lot more. The festival will run until their Pumpkin Madness Weekend on November 4 and 5 when pumpkins will be catapulted, smashed, tossed, rolled and dropped into oblivion.
