If you're looking to start a new family tradition, why not check out The Great Pumpkin Fest at Kings Island. Aside from all of the fantastic rides and games at Kings Island, you can visit the Great Pumpkin Fest over at Soak City. You will get more bang for your buck when Soak City closes for the winter season, just by attending this event.
The Great Pumpkin Fest presented by Hershey™ and Kroger® is just a hop and a skip from Plant Snoopy, past Snoopy's Barnyard Friends Petting Farm. You can also get there by taking the train.
The Great Pumpkin Fest activities start at noon and last until 6pm. Be sure to pick up a map when you arrive, as there are so many activities to do once you get there. Follow the Candy Corn on the map and you can search for treats at candy stops located throughout. Visit the pumpkins on the map for other Great Pumpkin Fest activities.
Beginning at 2:00pm every Saturday & Sunday join Lucy's Holiday Fashion Show an Costume Contest. Another great event to get one more use out of that costume!
The Great Party Zone is loaded with singing and dancing fun. Join Snoopy, Charlie Brown and other members of the PEANUTS™ gang.
Follow the sign for so many activities. Peppermint Patty's Tall Tales is a great show and story time. Visit this at 1:00, 2:00, 3:30 and 4:30.
Check out the Linus' Labyrinth and see if you can make your way through the maze.
If you like games, Franklin's Game Zone is just another fun activity for you and your family. Kids will love testing their skills at all of the carnival themed games.
The Great Pumpkin Fest is sure to be a fit for your whole family. It's a great way to slow down just a bit at the park for some great family photo opportunities, and a non-scary way for families to trick or treat.
Keep in mind that Halloween Haunt is Not Recommended for children. The rides and attractions in Planet Snoopy begin to close at 5pm on Saturdays transforming the park. We visited on a Sunday and there were a few decorations throughout the park, but they're open until 7pm and none of the highly graphic stuff comes out on Sunday.
Have a great time, and if you go, please use #vintageindie on Instagram, I want to see how much fun you had!
