Harvest Days 2017

Published by Heather Fesmire in Bucks Country GardensWhat's Happening

It’s that time of year again! Autumn is almost here and Harvest Days 2017 is oh so near. Bucks Country Gardens celebrates fall by transforming our Garden Center into an autumn wonderland for seven weeks, complete with festive décor, hayrides, corn maze, pumpkin slingshot, pumpkin painting, food, entertainment, and more! It’s time to get excited. It’s only 5 days away (starts September 15)! Let’s explore what is in store at Harvest Days…

When is Harvest Days?

Harvest Days is from Sept 15 thru Oct 29 and is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11am until 6pm. Wow! So much time to pack in the fall fun!

What kinds of activities are at Harvest Days?

  • Explore our 4-acre Corn Maze, cut into a design of our barn with an open space in the center filled with more activities! It also includes a Mini Maze for those less adventurous. Inside the mazes, there are hidden rubbing posts. Use the sheet that is handed out to rub the images into the spaces. If you find all the post designs, you win a prize!
  • Take a tractor-pulled Hayride around our property! Enjoy the scenery found around Bucks Country Gardens as well as festive decorations hidden among the landscape.
  • Think you can get a bull’s eye with our Pumpkin or Potato Sling Shot? Fire off a few for a chance to win a prize. So. Much. FUN!
  • Pumpkins make great canvases for Painting – add a few embellishments to create your very own masterpiece! Take home your creations to brighten up your front porch or deck.
