Families of all ages have been embarking on the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum’s annual Pumpkin Adventure in October.
“With it being fall, that’s the season of feeling good. People are just happy. We’re easing into that nice weather and it brings a nice atmosphere. That is what we like to do here at the museum is to provide that atmosphere to the families,” said Justin Nipper, AG Museum Marketing and Events Specialist.
The event centers around a 40 acre hay ride through the Fall decorated grounds. The ride ends with a stop for milk and cookies before guests have the opportunity to tour the rest of the museum and pick up a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch on the way out. Also, there was a new corn pit with a slide and tunnel.
Rudy Bazin and his wife Caroline enjoyed the hayride and playing in the corn pit with their one year old son Kaius.
“It is fun to bring him here and take him to the corn pit where he can go crazy. He enjoyed the hay ride which was really fun for him to see out the window. Being outside and actually having an activity to do, that was really neat,” said Rudy Bazin.
Pumpkin Adventure spans over three weekends starting on Oct. 5-8, 12-15, and 19-22.
