The air is finally cool, pumpkins are appearing on doorsteps, and any day now the leaves will start to turn. My favorite time of year! We celebrated the season this weekend by going to Temple Hall Fall Festival in Leesburg, VA. We purchased evening tickets for $10 and felt we had gotten our money’s worth in the first ten minutes. The festival is very kid-friendly, but there is plenty for adults to enjoy as well.
Activities included with the price of admission:
- Two corn mazes (It seemed that there is a day and night version)
- Unlimited use of the Corn Cannons (hurl corn at targets in a field)
- 20 paintballs to shoot at targets in a field
- Two giant jumping pillows (trampoline-like) that were surprisingly awesome
- Practice lassoing
- Pig Race at 1 PM and 3 PM
- Turkeys, chickens, peahens, pigs, three-week-old piglets, and more farm animals
- Cow Train
- Giant Inflatable Slide
- Bounce House
- Possibly a couple more things that I missed!
Activities that cost extra:
- Pumpkin Blaster (or apples if they are out of pumpkins)- $2 per shot or $15 for 10 shots
- Pumpkin Ring Toss for a prize- $2 per game
- Balloon Pop with darts for a prize- $2 per game
- Country store- prices vary for pumpkins and other take-home items
- Concession stand- prices vary for apple cider, hot cocoa, funnel cake, etc.
The festival is open most Fridays to Sundays now until November 6th.
Most daytime tickets (Fridays-Sundays) are $14, except tickets for children ages 3-11 and adults 55+ are $11. Children ages 2 and under are FREE. The daytime tickets can be used the entire day, including in the evening 10 AM-10 PM.
If you purchase the evening tickets, like we did, they are usable from 5 PM-10 PM. The cost for children ages 3-11 along with adults 55+ is $8, and children 2 and under are still FREE.
We had a blast while there was still daylight and enjoyed going through the corn maze at night. The festival is well-lit at night, but it is dark in the corn maze. You can see the festival lights while you are walking out of the maze, but it is very dark when you are facing away from the festival. You may want to use a phone flashlight in the maze. Don’t forget to grab a bookmark-size map of the corn maze when you first come to the festival.
